What is the Nutrition Society Student Section?

The Student Section is formed of students from across the UK and Ireland who have volunteered to represent the students in their geographical area and their own University, creating a direct link with their peers and the Nutrition Society.  The Section has two co-chairs who represent students on The Nutrition Society Advisory Council to highlight views and opinions on behalf of nutrition students from across the country. Working alongside the Section Co-Chairs, the Student Section helps promote the benefits of Nutrition Society membership and organises the annual Student Conference (Nutrition Futures 2018), as well as networking and career development sessions during other Society events.

Who should attend?

Nutrition Futures 2018 is suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying or having studied on nutrition related courses, as well as prospective students intending to study food and nutrition or dietetics related subjects.
