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 on June 7-9, 2016, at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.

This 3-day practicum will provide a thorough overview on the issues, concepts, unknowns, and controversies about dietary supplements and supplement ingredients. It will also emphasize 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.

We hope that you will share this information with your organization’s listserv and colleagues who might also be interested in applying to attend-especially faculty, students, and practitioners with a serious interest in the subject. The deadline to apply is Monday, April 4, 2016.
