In July, Foods and Nutrition Professor Dr. Mee Young Hong was recognized with the prestigious Korean Nutrition Society Award at Nutrition 2023 at the American Society for Nutrition conference in Boston.
In 2010, the Korean Nutrition Society (KNS) and the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) established the Korean Nutrition Society Award. This award is to improve understanding and co-operation between societies in nutritional matters of common interest and concern. The KNS Award promotes excellence in nutrition research conducted by a North American scientist, an ASN member and engaged with KNS, Korea, or related collaborators or studies.
Nominees included ASN members collaborating with KNS investigators; scientists studying issues relevant to the Korean population; Korean investigators involved in research in North America; and/or other ASN members working on outstanding research in nutrition.
Congratulations, Dr. Hong, on receiving this prestigious award!
