Quarterly Key Publication in
The Physician Engagement Committee in partnership with Nutrition in Clinical Practice will publish thought-provoking and educational nutrition articles spearheaded by physician nutrition specialists. The publication may be a pivotal paper, systematic/narrative review, clinical controversy or clinical dilemma. Proposed article topics will be vetted prior to manuscript preparation. If interested, please contact Jay Patel or Berkeley Limketkai. We are currently seeking authors for June and September 2023.


The Medical Practice Section (MPS) is sponsored by the Physician Engagement Committee (PEC) and committed to improving education and member involvement, with a particular emphasis on increasing physician awareness, visibility and networking in clinical nutrition. The section sponsors a symposium every year at the ASPEN annual meeting and works year-round to provide physicians and other medical professionals opportunities to engage in nutrition mentorship, research, and clinical practice. The MPS is led by a chair and chair elect, who are active members within the PEC. Membership is open to all disciplines, and cross-collaboration among providers is encouraged.

To learn more about opportunities with MPS, including sponsorship of educational and curricular events and member outreach programming, please contact the current chair, Carolyn Newberry, at [email protected].
