The next Mary Frances Picciano Dietary Supplement Research Practicum will take place June 10–12, 2020 on the main campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is offering a two and a half day educational opportunity to provide fundamental knowledge of dietary supplements to faculty, students, and practitioners with a serious interest in this subject. This intensive practicum will provide a thorough overview and grounding about issues, concepts, unknowns, and controversies about dietary supplements and supplement ingredients. It will also emphasize the importance of scientific investigations to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and value of these products for health promotion and disease prevention as well as how to carry out this type of research.
