The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) was founded in 1928 as the American Institute for Nutrition. In 2005, the American Society for Clinical Nutrition, the American Society for Nutritional Sciences (formerly the American Institute for Nutrition) and the Society for International Nutrition merged to form ASN. Today, the Society encompasses both research and clinical focuses and is building upon its rich history.

ASN is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing together the world's top researchers, clinical nutritionists and industry to advance our knowledge and application of nutrition for the sake of humans and animals. Our focus ranges from the most critical details of research and application to the broadest applications in society, in the U.S. and around the world. 

Members of ASN receive benefits ranging from online access to three publications (the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition and our new publication Advances in Nutrition), reduced rates for registration at Experimental Biology (the society's annual meeting) and networking among the fifteen Research Interest Sections and the three society Councils. ASN's membership benefits mean we can assist you in staying informed and developing professionally - no matter your research or clinical specialty.

The Canadian Nutrition Society/la SociÉtÉ canadienne de nutrition (CNS/SCN) was formed by a merger of the Canadian Society for Clinical Nutrition and the Canadian Society for Nutritional Sciences.  The new Society became operational on January 1, 2010.

CNS is the leading society integrating disciplines and professions interested in nutrition in Canada. They promote nutrition science and education, and advocate for the application of best practice and policies for the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of disease.

Members of CNS receive such benefits as online access to two journals (Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism and Nutrition in Clinical Practice), preferred rates to the CNS national and regional conference, eligibility for CNS awards & travel grants and members-only website access.
