How to Get Involved with Nutrition Research Network

Membership participation in the Nutrition Research Network (formerly the Dietetics Practice Based Research Network) is open to all members of the Academy. Nutrition Research Network members have a wide range of experience and expertise in research, from beginners to experts. About 58 percent of Nutrition Research Network members have master's degrees and 10 percent have PhDs. The rest hold associate's or bachelor's degrees or are students.

Membership in the Nutrition Research Network is open and free to all Academy members. To join, members can email NRN@eatright.org with "join" and their member number in the subject line.

Nutrition Research Network members receive a monthly email about project opportunities and new research resources. Members also have the opportunity to propose projects to the network and, when approved by the Oversight Committee, collaborate with the staff to design and execute the study. However, membership in the network carries no obligation to participate in any of the projects.

Members can propose projects to the Nutrition Research Network Oversight committee. The Nutrition Research Network does not fund studies, but staff will work with members to obtain funding for projects that are approved by the Oversight Committee.

The Nutrition Research Network also offers mentoring opportunities to members who are interested in getting involved in practice-based research.
