The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is now accepting applications for the Mary Frances Picciano Dietary Supplement Research Practicum to be held on May 29-31, 2019, on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.
This 2.5-day practicum will provide a thorough overview and grounding on the issues, concepts, unknowns, and controversies about dietary supplements and supplement ingredients. It will also emphasize the importance of scientific investigation to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and value of these products for health promotion and disease prevention as well as how to carry out this type of research. It is an educational opportunity open to faculty, students, and practitioners with a serious interest in the subject.
We hope that you will share this information with your organization’s listserv and colleagues who might be interested in applying to attend—especially faculty, students, and practitioners with a serious interest in the subject.
Approximately 100 individuals will be selected to participate. The deadline to apply is Thursday, February 28, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
