Brief description 

Please join us for the Midcareer Network (MCN) workshop at the 2019 ISBNPA Annual Meeting. The MCN is the most recent community within the ISBNPA membership and includes researchers and practitioners who self-select themselves to be at mid-career: although the typical member is frequently 5-9 years post-doctoral program. The MCN goals are to discuss issues particularly relevant to those at midcareer such as, balancing teaching, service, and research, disseminating research via social media, and mentorship. In this half-day workshop, we aim to have participatory sessions with mid-career and senior researchers from the field of physical activity and nutrition who will provide insights into the core topics described above.
