The Nutrition Graduate Student Association (NGSA) is a student fee-funded organization formed by students to promote the interests of the UNCG Nutrition graduate students.   Please check out our site on Spartan Connect by typing in NGSA in the search bar for more information.

The purpose of the NGSA is to provide social support, funding, networking, and career-building opportunities.  When we are able to return to face-to-face activities, we also participate in events and with organizations to give back to the community through service and volunteering.

The NGSA meets once a month.  Our meetings this semester (and maybe next) will be virtual Zoom meetings.  NGSA meetings give us a chance to take a deep breath, share some thoughts about our research and course work, and have some fun.

We welcome inquiries to Tina Irrer  or Meg Lawless
