NutriNews Issue 7 2017 - Page 6

Letter Mary R L’Abbé “NutriNews”: Our Official Magazine PhD Department of Nutritional Sciences Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto from the Chair This year, I am pleased to announce the formal partnership between the Department of Nutritional Sciences and our student-run newsletter “NutriNews”. For the past six years, NutriNews has provided us with an up-to-date summary of events and accomplishments of faculty members and students. This seventh issue marks a turning point – we are transforming our newsletter into the official magazine of the Department. Last year’s issue of “Prescription to Nutrition” marked the transition of NutriNews from a simple newsletter to a more comprehensive publication. Our current issue, the “Nutrition of Everything”, carries this forward by solidifying its status as our official magazine. It will further establish who we are as a Department in the field of nutritional sciences by showcasing more of our students’ creative talents as they tackle current issues in nutrition. It is our collective hope that this and future issues will not only be a circular with information about our Department, but that they will contain our beliefs, opinions and ideas. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the NutriNews team, staff, students and contributors for their dedication, creativity and motivation to produce our very first official Departmental magazine.
