Jamy Ard, M.D., an associate professor in the Department of Nutrition Sciences and associate dean for clinical affairs for the School of Health Professions, has been appointed to the editorial board of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. His two-year term begins June 1, 2011.
This appointment indicates the high regard his fellow scientists have for his research contributions and for the valuable research critiques he has provided as an ad hoc reviewer for AJCN, said Robert M. Russell, M.D., president of the American Society for Nutrition.
Ard’s research interests include behavioral therapies focused on cardiovascular risk reduction. He is developing strategies that will improve African-American participation and outcomes in clinical trials that deal with cardiovascular disease risk.
