the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and the ASN Foundation have selected Lisa M. Troy, Associate Professor of Nutrition, as the recipient of their ASN Volunteer of the Year award.
The Volunteer of the Year award rewards exceptional contributions to enhance, promote and support ASN’s activities and programs, and is awarded to Troy and his colleagues on the Minority Affairs and Diversity Committee. She will be virtually honored along with other ASN 2020 and 2021 award winners before and during the NUTRITION 2021 LIVE ONLINE event which will be held June 7-10.
“Creating a welcoming culture that encourages the participation of diverse people is a personal mission,” says Troy. “Such a culture strengthens our individual and collective contributions to science and, above all, our impact on public health. ASN is leading the way within the nutrition community on diversity through discourse and action. It has been an honor to be part of this effort – discussing thorny issues, generating creative solutions and embedding diversity into the fabric of an international scientific society.
ASN is the professional organization par excellence dedicated to a healthier world thanks to evidence-based nutrition. Founded in 1928, the company brings together researchers, medical practitioners, policy makers and industry leaders from around the world to expand the knowledge and applications of nutrition.
