Jose Nicolas Murgueitio, graduate student in Developmental Psychology, has been elected as Student Representative to the American Society for Nutrition (ASN)’s Global Nutrition Council.

The Global Nutrition Council serves ASN members with basic and applied research interests in all aspects of human nutrition of relevance to both economically less-developed countries and to disadvantaged populations, and the translation of this knowledge into training, policies and programs. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: (1) undernutrition and deficiency diseases, (2) the nutrition transition and the emergence of obesity and diet-related chronic disease; (3) relationships between infection and nutrition, (4) nutrition interventions and their evaluation, and (5) the relationships between economic development policy and nutrition.

Congratulations, Nicolas!
