CRN and ASNF Program for Scholars Winners Benefit From Access to Nutrition Science Symposium

The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) has again partnered with the American Society for Nutrition Foundation (ASNF) to support educational opportunities for the next generation of nutrition scientists and practitioners.

The CRN and ASNF Program for Scholars (CAPS) Award was launched last year, providing selected student members of ASN access to CRN’s signature symposium, Science in Session.

“CRN is pleased to support students who aspire to lead in nutrition science with access to the latest research updates and insights from our slate of Science in Session presenters,” said CRN Senior Vice President, Scientific and Regulatory Affairs, Andrea Wong, PhD. “CAPS winners get exposure to relevant science that will serve them as they develop in their careers to provide accessible, science-backed guidance about health and wellness to those they serve.”

Part of CRN’s efforts to support the nutrition research community and enhance awareness of the role dietary supplements play in nutrition, CAPS awards students selected by ASN based on their academic record and commitment to research. Winners receive funding for travel expenses and a complimentary registration for Science in Session, which features experts in nutrition and dietary supplement research. This year’s Science in Session symposium, focused on optimizing health through nutrition, took place on Oct. 11 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix.

The 2022 CAPS awardees include:

• Samiha Azgar, a first-year PhD student studying nutritional biochemistry and human metabolism at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.

• Samantha Fessler, a third-year doctoral student in the exercise and nutritional science program at Arizona State University.

• Doreen Larvie, a PhD nutrition student in her final year at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro.

CRN also provides ASNF with annual grants for nutrition researchers through the Mary Swartz Rose Awards.
