Posters by TWU graduate students, faculty named ‘best’ at national nutrition association conference


DENTON – A poster by Texas Woman’s University nutrition and food sciences graduate students Rachelle Fowler and Peggy Pratt received the award for best practices poster at the recent national School Nutrition Association conference. TWU nutrition faculty Dr. Carolyn Bednar, Dr. Nancy DiMarco and Dr. Junehee Kwon also were recognized as having the best research poster at the meeting.

Ms. Fowler, a master’s student in institutional administration and business, and Ms. Pratt, a doctoral nutrition student, were recognized for their poster titled, “Nutrition Education through a Virtual Cafeteria.”

Ms. Fowler, of Garland, is the director of child nutrition services for the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District. Ms. Pratt, of Flower Mound, is the assistant director of child nutrition services for the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District.

Drs. Bednar, DiMarco and Kwon’s poster was titled, “Impact of a school-based coordinated nutrition intervention on selection and consumption of fruits and vegetables of students in K-2.” An article about the posters is featured in the November issue of School Foodservice and Nutrition, the official publication of the School Nutrition Association.

“Receiving recognition for our work on these poster projects at a national conference demonstrates the excellent faculty and students in the TWU nutrition program,” said Dr. Bednar, TWU nutrition professor.
