Scholarly Works Committee

The role of this committee is to spearhead and/or facilitate the realization and dissemination of scholarly works (i.e., collaborative papers, book chapters, symposia/presentations, and other forms of scientific communication) that advance the FIT’NG mission and vision. We also work closely with FIT’NG members to seek grant funding (for example, NIH training-related programs) for FIT’NG initiatives.

We are here to support any FIT’NG member who has an idea for a scholarly work. Please reach out to learn how we can help.
