Coalition Involvement

Excellence in Nutrition Research and Practice

ASN works through partnerships with like-minded organizations and coalitions, an alliance of organizations whose combined action can lead to a mutually beneficial end result: to advance human nutrition research and its funding, and ensure the sound application and translation of nutrition science in legislation and policy. As a member of the Federation of American Societies in Experimental Biology (FASEB), ASN strongly supports the public policy work of this coalition of 30 scientific societies representing more than 125,000 researchers worldwide. FASEB's Office of Public Affairs (OPA) collaborates with ASN's government relations staff, and the work of the two organizations is complementary.
