Sight and Life has committed to match up to $50,000 from members and friends of the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) in order to create an endowment for the Inaugural Nevin Scrimshaw Mid-Career Award. The goal is a total fund of $100,000, which will allow the award to be bestowed in perpetuity.
Dr. Scrimshaw led an extraordinary career dedicated to the alleviation of hunger and malnutrition with work that substantially improved the lives of millions of people around the globe. This new award aims to annually pay tribute to Dr. Scrimshaw’s invaluable contributions while recognizing those who are following in his footsteps. Each year, a mid-career professional who is doing innovative work to advance the global nutrition field will be awarded this prestigious honor.
A total of $50,000 from the ASN membership is required to permanently endow the Nevin Scrimshaw Mid-Career Award. Please join us in our support and consider making a contribution to this effort through the following mechanisms:
