Military dietitians are engaged in a variety of research projects at any given time. Some dietitians are assigned to work on research exclusively, such as the dietitians of United States Army Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM) of Natick, Massachusetts. Other dietitians are finding fresh opportunities for research in deployed environments. The Master's Program in Nutrition includes research as a fundamental goal for each student. Student abstracts are included below.
The GPN faculty and student's professional involvement in the field of nutrition includes publications, poster sessions, invited lectures, and grant activities. They are published in a variety of journels and books. e.g. Journal of Academy and Dietetics, Diabetes Educator, Military Medicine, Therapeutic Advances in Gastroenterology to name a few. Topics range from Weight, Lifestyle, and Behavior Change, Pre-Diabetes, Joint Field Nutrition Operations, Performance Nutrition, and Minerals and Nutritional Status are a few examples. See the sidebar for the GPN Faculty and Student Publications in the last five years list.
