Undergraduate students have many opportunities to participate and present research. Jadin Fields, Dietetics Major (2019) (third from left) was a Diversity Award Winner for her work funded by The Center for Undergraduate Research & Scholarship on parental dietary behaviors related to caring for a child living with autism spectrum disorder. Her faculty mentor for this project was Dr. Kerri Lynn Knippen (second from left). Her research was also accepted for a poster presentation at the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetic's annual Food & Nutrition Conference and Expo (2019). Congratulations Jadin! Check out the story here
