ASN’s Student Interest Group (SIG)

The Student Interest Group (SIG) focuses on the interests of student members in the Society. Students are informed of and encouraged to participate in various activities that center on enabling them to gain the most from their nutritional science education.

Society activities allow students to network and prepare for post-academic success. Members of the SIG also work as liaisons with other committees in ASN to provide student perspective where it is needed. The SIG focuses on developing student-specific activities at ASN’s Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions at NUTRITION. Some of the events include hosting an annual symposium, speed mentoring co-sponsored with the Early Career Nutrition (ECN) Interest Group and the Graduate Student Breakfast.
