The Department of Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health invites you to the 44th annual Grace M. Shugart Lecture Series on Wednesday, May 2 at 4:00p.m. in the Business Building Lecture Lecture Hall, Room 1088.

The lecture series is a long standing tribute to Ms. Shugart's accomplishments as a leader in the dietetics profession where she served as president of the American Dietetic Association (now Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics), department head in the College of Human Ecology, and as a visionary for food management education throughout the country.

This year’s presenter is Tatyana El-Kour, MS, RDN, FAND. Ms. El-Kour holds a bachelor's degree in Dietetics from K-State and has worn many hats in her career including clinician, public health officer, policy strategist and change agent. She possesses more than 15 years of multicultural expertise in national, regional, and global efforts related to policy, application, research and practice intersecting public health, social and nutrition sciences, behavioral change, technology, and media. As a native of Jordan, Ms. El-Kour's work has been mostly focused on the Middle East and North African region, and on Middle Eastern populations across the globe. For more information on Ms. El-Kour, please visit our website.

A luncheon will precede the lecture at 1:00 p.m. in the Kramer Dining Center at a cost of $12 per person and can be paid at the door. A reception immediately following the lecture will be in Hoffman Lounge of Justin Hall. For planning purposes we ask you to please RSVP for both the luncheon and reception using this LINK.
