The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) recently recognized PhD student Courtney Millar as an emerging leader at its Nutrition 2018 meeting in Boston. Millar was part of the Emerging Leaders in Nutrition Science poster competition, which recognizes the highest quality research presented by students and young investigators to ASN’s abstract categories, according to the Nutrition 2018 website.


Jillian Ives, Ambassador Program Administrator, announced the new College Ambassador cohort for 2018-2019. The Ambassador website says, “Ambassadors serve as the face of CAHNR and RHSA. They help run programs on- and off-campus, and get to meet prospective students and families, current UConn students, and alums. They also receive leadership training and professional development from faculty and staff.”
