All applicants must be willing to actively participate in Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) activities, including seminars, workshops, and symposia, and to present NORC seminars describing their work. Each P/F awardee will be assigned a working group and must be willing to meet regularly with the working group (2-4 times per year, depending on progress).

Letters of intent are due by noon, Monday, March 5, 2018.
