Location: Ngurdoto Hotel, Arusha, Tanzania, Africa

As part of efforts to support learned societies in developing countries, the Nutrition Society is delighted to announce that it will be holding a training workshop at The Federation of African Nutrition Societies (FANUS) Conference 25-29 May in Arusha, Tanzania. 

Background about the workshop:
Networking is an increasingly important aspect of career development for nutrition professionals and especially for those seeking employment at early stages of their career.  Many early career nutritionists in Africa attend conferences for personal development where they are exposed to a network of potential employers or collaborators.  However, maximising the success of these opportunities relies on effective networking skills.

Attendance to the workshop is FREE to FANUS conference delegates.  Registeration is now open for this workshop.

Background of workshop:
A critical aspect of the scientific process is the reporting of new results in scientific journals in order to disseminate that information to the larger community of scientists. Communication of research results contributes to the pool of knowledge within a given discipline. Scientific journals only accept papers for publication only after peer review by a small group of scientists who work in the same field and who recommend the paper be published (usually with some revision).

Attendance to the workshop is FREE to FANUS conference delegates.  Registeration is now open for this workshop.
