Student Blogger Program Overview

The American Society for Nutrition blog ( is an integral part of the Society's web presence and an important vehicle to reach members, web visitors, and other interested individuals. To promote the ASN blog as a dynamic communication tool, the Society periodically enlists a cadre of students and young professionals to serve as ASN bloggers and increase posts, comments and activity. The student blogging program increases the visibility of ASN in web search results and among the nutrition education community as a resource for commentary and insight.

Student bloggers are required to submit a minimum of four posts throughout their terms; for these mandatory submissions, bloggers will receive an honorarium of $50 per post. Bloggers can submit additional articles, with a maximum of twelve blog entries posted during their tenures. Students should choose topics that will be of interest to fellow students, as well as other ASN members, consumers, etc.Examples include: hot topics in nutrition (i.e. diabetes, obesity), nutrition programs, experience with nutrition internships, lab research, journal article reviews, postdoc experiences, etc. ASN reserves the right to edit submissions for length, appropriateness and accuracy.

sorry for the mistake Emily! we added your name to the list.

The 2011 student bloggers were amazing, especially Ann L. The new team has a lot to live up to!

This student blogger program is very commendable for allowing students to increase their nutrition knowledge and writing skills.

Very creative idea. I never would of thought of something like this. Cannot not wait to see what the future brings with this idea.
