The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN; Washington, DC) has donated $10,000 to the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in an educational grant that will provide for graduate students to attend The Workshop: CRN’s Day of Science. The grant, which is designed for use over a “multi-year time frame,” will cover the travel expenses for two graduate students per year to attend CRN’s annual, one-day scientific symposium.
“We are fully aware of the critical role that nutrition plays in good health, and understand the importance of encouraging and supporting students seeking further education-and hopefully careers-in nutrition science and policy,” said Duffy MacKay, ND, senior vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs for CRN. “We have enormous respect for the graduate programs at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to their efforts.”
The Friedman School will select graduate students to receive funding from the grant based on academic record and commitment to research. CRN will also waive the symposium registration fee for grant recipients.
CRN’s Day of Science features presentations on nutrition and dietary supplements from highly regarded research experts. The event will take place this year on October 26 at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California. More information on The Workshop can be found here.
