Anyone with a doctoral degree and an interest in obesity and nutrition can become a member of the Pennington / Louisiana NORC. We have three categories of members:
Regular Members are faculty members at Pennington and at institutions across Louisiana working on funded nutrition/obesity research. They are part of our NORC research base.
Collaborating Members are faculty members at Pennington and at institutions across Louisiana such as LSU A&M, LSU-Health Sciences Centers in New Orleans and Shreveport, Tulane University and Xavier University in New Orleans and some across the country, all collaborating with our regular members.
Mentored Members In association with our training grants, we have created a new category of members who are postdoctoral fellows and students working under the mentorship of NORC Members or NORC Collaborating Members.
