The Student Nutrition Society Journal Club (NSJC) is a monthly, 1-hour session open to all Nutrition Society student members as a free benefit of membership. Full members are also welcome to join. Each journal club will focus on a recent research paper, and will be led by a member of the Society's Student Section.
With nutrition receiving an increasing amount of interest from policy-makers, the press, and the public, there is a need to advance nutritional science through evidence-based practice and research that meets rigorous scientific standards and is conducted with integrity.
Kiu Sum, Student Section Chair, will host the next NSJC, discussing: Can unhealthy food purchases at checkout counters be discouraged by introducing healthier snacks? A real-life experiment in supermarkets in deprived urban areas in the Netherlands
The NSJC aims to promote and develop:
Discussion and engagement with the latest research papers
Development of critical appraisal skills
The interpretation and communication of research findings.
Attendees who participated in NSJC said:
"I enjoy the journal clubs and will definitely be looking to join each month"
"A great way for a student to understand the critiquing of literature and the way in which to communicate such"
Continuing Professional Development (CPD):
The Journal Club has been endorsed by the Association for Nutrition (EN182).
