We are currently expanding partnerships with nutrition societies in Asia and Europe, and a fast-growing portion of our members come from outside of the United States.
One such long-time international member is newly-elected ASN Secretary- Dr. Catherine Field of the University of Alberta. There, Dr. Field serves as a professor in the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science. Her current research interests focus on the effect of nutrition on the immune system. She recently spoke about her experience as an international member of ASN and her plans as the organization's new secretary. Read the full interview here.
