The Foundation will expand resources, drive interest in nutrition science careers, support early-career scientists and increase the skills, infrastructure, and resources of investigators and institutions worldwide. ASNF offers predoctoral fellowships and other forms of researcher support, including travel awards. Programs to enhance scientists’ publishing potential and other skills have been implemented in Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
In 2019, our priorities include:
- Provide much needed Awards and Scholarships to the diverse spectrum of ASN members from students to lifelong investigators;
- Launch ASN Foundation’s Medical Schools Initiative to equip physicians-in-training and other health professionals with the nutrition knowledge and skills needed to reduce the risk of many diet-related chronic diseases and assure healthy patterns in children;
- Implement the recommendations and outcomes from ASN’s “Ensuring Trust, Transparency and Scientific Rigor in the Nutrition Science Landscape,” an initiative to enhance the quality and credibility of nutrition research in both the scientific community and the public sector;
- Enhance ASN’s Online Learning platform – more free webinars, and greater online resources for members through ASN On-Demand;
- And, more!
