The Khursheed Jeejeebhoy Award for Best Application of Clinical Nutrition Research Findings to Clinical Practice
This prestigious award is given annually to a Canadian or Canadian-based individual who has made an outstanding contribution in the broad sphere of application of clinical nutrition research beyond the nature of achievement that would normally be recognized by an award for such application of nutrition research findings. The recipient will have effectively or creatively applied their research work such that it extends clinical nutrition practice beyond the currently accepted boundaries or materially expands clinical nutrition practice within those boundaries.
In making your nomination, please provide written details of the specific research conducted and the clinical application developed and applied as a result of it, along with your reasons for considering them to be particularly meritorious. A biographical summary (biosketch, and/or C.V.), although not essential for the assessment of merit, is required for each individual for citation and award presentation. CNS Membership is not required of the nominee but will be viewed as an asset.
The award consists of complimentary registration at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference and Awards Banquet, presentation of a plenary lecture at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference by the recipient, a plaque or other recognition, and monetary award towards travel and accommodation.
Nominations may be made by anyone and are open to all, but preference will be given to members and supporters of CNS. An anonymous committee, appointed by the Canadian Nutrition Society, will recommend the selected recipient of the Khursheed Jeejeebhoy Award. The Award will be presented at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference.
Nominations are due February 1, 2019 - submitted via the Online Award Nomination tool
