School Nutrition Annual Conference

The Annual Nutrition Conference of the School Nutrition Association was held this July in Las Vegas. Dr. Alicia Landry represented UCA by presenting 4 posters, leading a poster session, and leading a presentation. Dr. Landry was joined by Audrey Chandler MS, RD (Intern Class of 2017) who presented her thesis research and received the Kathleen Stitt Award for research. Sharon Burgess MS, RD also joined Dr. Landry for a presentation on employee training. The training was packed and attendees provided great feedback.  This research represents collaborations with Conway Public Schools, Arkansas Department of Education, No Kid Hungry, and many other research participants.

Also, Dr. Cleta Long from Dade County Schools in Georgia came by and we snapped a photo of three generations of UCA Family and Consumer Science Alums who work in School Nutrition!

Go Bears!
