nutrition forum


The Nutrition Consortium would like to introduce the first Nutrition Forum of our Spring Semester! This forum is a student-led group for those interested and engaged in nutrition research and practice. The first forum will take place January 24th, 2020 from 3:00-4:00PM in Discovery Room 140. This forum will be a panel discussion of graduate students that are currently involved in nutrition research. Each student will discuss their research experiences, their trajectory of how they got where they are now, and any guidance/advice they may have for those interested in nutrition research. Join us as we strive to generate and communicate knowledge across the spectrum of nutrition research!
