Our Enrichment Program is led by Dr. Leanne Redman and the Pennington Biomedical Division of Scientific Education.
The overarching objective of our enrichment program is to provide a focused framework of outreach activities that:
- fosters multidisciplinary scientific approaches to nutrition/obesity research
- attracts new investigators and investigators with relevant complementary expertise to nutrition/obesity research
- trains the next generation of scientists in nutrition/obesity research and
- provides a conduit between researchers and the lay community.
To achieve these programmatic objectives, our enrichment program is developed to cater to 5 unique groups; NORC members, the participating institutions’ faculty, postdocs and students, along with the lay community.
