Our Enrichment & Outreach Program is led by Dr. Peter Katzmarzyk 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.
