In our weekly seminars, nutrition experts take time from their busy schedules to visit UGA and share their insight with FDN students, faculty, staff, and alumni. These seminars supplement traditional coursework and provide a medium for introducing attendees to the latest trends and practices in clinical, industry, research, and community nutrition. Also listed in this schedule are seminars and proposal/thesis defenses delivered by our FDN students.

Below is a list of our seminars occuring during the spring 2018 semester. You may also view past seminars.
