Washington, D.C.—The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) announced in a press release that three students from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University were given educational awards to attend The Workshop: CRN’s Day of Science held in November in California. As part of the award, recipients Carley Bowering, Kate Harrington, and Emily Kjell received funding for travel expenses and a waived registration fee for the scientific symposium. Recipients were chosen based on their academic record and commitment to research.
The awards are part of CRN’s most recent efforts to support the nutrition research community, the release says. CRN has provided educational awards for Friedman students to attend The Workshop since 2016, and since 2008, CRN has provided the American Society of Nutrition with annual education awards for nutrition researchers through the Mary Swartz Rose Awards, presented to a senior and a junior investigator in the field of essential nutrients and bioactive food components.

Andrea Wong, Ph.D., SVP of Scientific & Regulatory Affairs, said in the release: “CRN is a strong advocate for advancing education in nutrition science, and we welcome opportunities to support students seeking further education and careers in nutrition science and policy. As a growing number of Americans are looking to registered dietitians or nutritionists as reliable sources of information on dietary supplements, it is important to CRN that we increase access to reputable, educational resources for the future of nutrition health care practitioners.”
