Dr. Lauren Dinour, Associate Professor in the Nutrition and Food Studies Department, will present at the International Association for Research on Service-Learning & Community Engagement (IARSLCE) Conference this week.
Dr. Dinour will speak on her service-learning course, NUFD 383 Applied Community Nutrition. The title of the talk is, “Video Pals: Virtual service-learning during a global pandemic is associated with reduced student loneliness.”
The annual IARSLCE conference is a scholarly venue to disseminate new knowledge on service-learning and community engagement. The focus of presentations, symposia, and keynotes is on research incorporating a variety of theoretical methodologies and perspectives. The conference also serves as a gathering place for networking and association business meetings for members. A significant component of the conference is the mentoring of graduate students and new faculty members interested in advancing their own research agendas in this field.
