Nutrition Society Sections
There are three Sections within the Nutrition Society, all with the remit of developing content and creating a network for their members.
The Student Section
The Nutrition Society Student Section is a group of student volunteers from different universities, chaired by the Student Section Chair. Each member of the Section has a specific job role eg. social media, resources, international, Nutrition Futures, etc. Additionally, the Student Representatives of the Irish and Scottish sections also sit on the Student Section.
The Section seeks to arrange webinars and events to bring nutrition science and the Nutrition Society to students and to amplify the voice of students back to the Society. Anyone can apply to be a part of the Section, but for reasons of continuity, it is always better if you have at least two years of your degree left to go when sitting on the Section. You will be able to gain new skills, learn from others and meet some interesting and useful contacts.
Rachel Moon, former Nutrition Futures Representative on the Student Section 2019-2021,
"Being part of the Student Section has been a great experience and so rewarding in many ways. I was the Nutrition Futures Representative from September 2019 and joined as an undergraduate student. As a direct result of this, I have gained some important life skills and made some lasting contacts. We achieved a lot over the 2 years from producing the most attended Nutrition Futures Conference ever, to starting up newsletters, and running specific student events including careers events. Working with individuals to organise these has improved my teamwork, leadership, and public speaking skills. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of a team with like-minded individuals, all at different stages of their university careers, and building relationships with the Nutrition Society staff.
The Student Section is open to any student at any degree level and it is a great opportunity to build on and learn skills that can take you through life. It gives you something alongside your degree to add to your CV that is really meaningful"
The Section's focus is to create a real student member community in order to more effectively support you, your education, and your career. If you are interested to know how you can help or get involved, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
