NGSA meets once a month.  Our meetings are usually held over the lunch hour and give us a chance to “take a deep breath”, share some thoughts about our research and course work, and have some fun.

As an organization, NGSA works to advance our students and the field of nutrition.

2012 Excellence Award
In 2012 and again in 2013 the NGSA won the UNCG Excellence Award for Overall Excellence for Community Service.
