DR. MARLENE HOLLICK PARTICIPATES IN THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH 2014 RESEARCH PRACTICUM

ASA College congratulates Dr. Marlene Hollick, Dean of the Division of Health Disciplines on her acceptance to the National Institutes of Health’s 2014 Research Practicum.

The NIH Dietary Supplement Research Practicum emphasizes the importance of scientific investigations 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.

Topics to be addressed include:

supplement use in the United States and reasons for use;
the regulatory framework governing supplements;
differences in bringing foods, drugs, and supplements to market;
supplement quality;
assessing the health effects of foods and supplements; and
developing policies and advice about supplement use based on science.
Participants will also meet with various stakeholders—the dietary supplement industry, consumer advocacy groups, and media—who study, advocate, regulate, or educate about dietary supplements. Participants will also have the option to take a guided tour of the NIH.

It is a great honor to have a member of our ASA community participate in this important and informative event.
