Scottish Section

The Scottish Section of Nutrition Society exists to arrange research meetings easily accessible to Scottish members and to provide a forum for nutrition education and research in Scotland.

Elections for Scottish Section Committee

Once a year the elections for our committees takes place.  The elections consist of nominating new NS Scottish Section members and/or a Secretary into the committee.  A benefit of being an NS member allows you the opportunity to nominate and vote for other NS members to be a committee member or Secretary of the committee.
