Membership

The American Society for Nutrition’s (ASN) membership of more than 7,500 scientists and practitioners continues to grow daily.

Founded in 1928, the Society’s membership rolls read like a “Who’s Who” in the field of nutrition research.

Founding members included E.V. McCollum and E.L.R. Stokstad. Society members have received Nobel prizes, appointments to the National Academy of Sciences, and many other prestigious honors. ASN members have broken ground in research and practice, and continue to serve as trailblazers across the world.
