TWU’s DiMarco named 2007 Distinguished Scientist by Texas Dietetic Association


DENTON — Dr. Nancy DiMarco, professor of nutrition and food sciences at Texas Woman’s University, recently was named the 2007 Distinguished Scientist by the Texas Dietetic Association (TDA).

According to the TDA, the award is given to a TDA member who has made outstanding and significant contributions to research in the field of dietetics, nutrition, food science or related sciences.

“Being recognized by your peers is wonderful, but truly I could not have received this award without the support of my husband, children, students, colleagues and staff because they made it possible,” Dr. DiMarco said.

Dr. DiMarco, who also serves as the director of TWU’s Institute for Women’s Health, performs research in the areas of osteoporosis and the effects of diet, exercise and hormonal status on bone metabolism throughout the lifecycle, and the impact of nutrition education on elementary school children’s food selections and bone mineral density. She is a member of the American Society for Bone & Mineral Research, American Society of Nutritional Sciences, American College of Sports Medicine, American Dietetic Association (ADA), Dietitians in Research, Sports and Cardiovascular Nutritionists, North Texas Dietetic Association, and Phi Kappa Phi. She also created the new subunit SCAN (Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutritionists) for Sports Dietetics-USA and serves on the specialty workgroup that created the certification examination for the Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics.
