Mentorship

With a growing number of students entering the nutrition field, the ACN recognizes the need to connect students with nutrition professionals to help advance our field. We are pleased to  offer a Mentorship Program to those individuals who are members of our organization.  

The ACN is not able to assist with placement into this program, rather the students will be required to connect with available mentors to learn more about the opportunities available.
