> Connect with fellow Students and Young Professionals at activities coordinated by ASN’s Student Interest Group and Young Professional Interest Group. Join in the Graduate Students Breakfast, Speed Mentoring, Students Meet the Fellows and other popular networking activities.

> Network with faculty from nutrition, food science and other related biomedical sciences to share successes, challenges and innovations in undergraduate and graduate education. The annual Department Heads Breakfast is a popular event!
