Family Friendly Nutrition Meeting

Nutrition 2018 aims to be a family friendly environment and ASN is offering small grants to help off-set caregiving expenses to enable scientists with dependent children or family members to present their research in Boston. 
 
The Nutrition 2018 Family Support Grant is a reimbursable allowance up to a maximum of $750 towards eligible funding scenarios. Provision of these grants is part of a study to assess and evaluate conference attendance feasibility; through this effort we will gather feedback about preferences and barriers to conference attendance. 
 
Special thanks to the National Dairy Council and The Sugar Association, our supporters of the inaugural Family Support Grants.

March is National Nutrition Month. The campaign promotes healthy eating habits and nutrition education, and it celebrates the people who promote these healthy habits. In 2018, the theme is “Go Further with Food”, highlighting that food decisions make an impact on your overall health.

Members of the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) are diverse. We study nutrition as a science, reporting on the physiological and biological aspects of foods and nutrients. We are also the nutrition educators and practitioners who get the latest nutrition science into the hands of those who need it: policymakers, dietitians, medical doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, and consumers. To celebrate National Nutrition Month and ASN’s impact on enhancing the knowledge of nutrition and quality of life, we will be highlighting some of our programs and activities that ultimately influence public health and how we can “go further with food.”
