Charlene W. Compher, PhD, RD, LDN, FASPEN, Professor of Nutrition Science in Penn Nursing’s Department of Biobehavioral Health Sciences and Director of Graduate Nutrition Programs, has been appointed to Pennsylvania’s State Board of Nursing. She will be the only dietitian/nutritionist representative on the board. Her six-year term began on October 26, 2022.
The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (Penn Nursing) is launching a new, online Master of Science in Nutrition Science (MSNS) program. The 10-course interdisciplinary program is built upon years of nutrition research and teaching at Penn. The MSNS will foster a formidable grounding in Nutrition Science to support innovation in nutritional management and research and enhance research skills to advance this work.
There are ways you could try to quantify the reach and influence of Penn Nursing. You could look at school rankings, which for the past five years have placed the School in the number one spot in the world. Or you could calculate the amount of research funding it’s been awarded by the National Institutes of Health.
