As an ECHO network member studying human nutrition, I definitely think this category should exist and hope to see the conversation expand further!
For one, I would be very interested to learn about and connecting with network members doing work in human nutrition.
While the very core of ECHO has historically been agriculture, nutrition represents the link between human health and agriculture science, and warrants careful examination in its own right. In this way, conversations around human nutrition uniquely contribute toward sustainable community development and human flourishing. Failing to consider human nutrition needs may lead to shortfalls in otherwise thoughtful projects.
My hope is that members doing work in nutrition might be able to use this space to discuss work, research, and questions pertaining human nutrition, particularly as it relates to agriculture. I would love to hear if others are interested in this sort of conversation, as well.
