Present: Marianne Burke, Kairn Kelley, Amanda Kennedy, Rodger Kessler, Ben Littenberg, Emily Tarleton, Connie van Eeghen
Start Up: The Importance of Celebrating Life in Paris (or wherever); The Importance of Getting Feedback and Responding to it Honestly
1. Discussion: Manuscript titled: “Magnesium Intake and Depression in US Adults” led by Emily and Ben:
a. Emily and Ben are going to submit to the Journal of Clinical Nutrition (audience is nutritionists, not epidemiologists or psychiatrists)
b. The discussion about supplementation does not clearly address the use of medications in the population under study. Should it be included or used as exclusion criteria?
c. The introduction was a strong literature review; is that needed in this kind of journal article?
d. The discussion of elderly seems incomplete, given the final results.
e. The “board of editors” found the article to be very strong, and recommended submission as soon as fine tuning could be completed. Well done!
2. Next Workshop Meeting(s): Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m., at Given Courtyard South Level 4. Remember: the first 15 minutes are for checking in with each other.

b. May 15: Vegetables, depression and cardiac outcomes and women – Rodger Kessler’s selection for journal article review
