Our Enrichment Program is led by Dr. Leanne Redman and the Pennington Biomedical Division of Scientific Education.


The overarching objective of our enrichment program is to provide a focused framework of outreach activities that:

  • fosters multidisciplinary scientific approaches to nutrition/obesity research
  • attracts new investigators and investigators with relevant complementary expertise to nutrition/obesity research
  • trains the next generation of scientists in nutrition/obesity research and
  • provides a conduit between researchers and the lay community.

To achieve these programmatic objectives, our enrichment program is developed to cater to 5 unique groups; NORC members, the participating institutions’ faculty, postdocs and students, along with the lay community.

The Pennington/Louisiana NORC enrichment program is built upon a solid foundation and strong leadership. The program is highly active offering numerous opportunities to engage, train and promote nutrition and obesity research. Furthermore, and most important, NORC members both locally and nationwide are and benefiting from its offerings.
