Faculty member goes to Qatar
M. Amanda Brown, PhD, RD, LD has accepted the challenge of developing a clinical nutrition professional practice program in Qatar. She will develop the program in association with Qatar University and Hamad Medical Corporation. The new program will meet the educational standards of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) and will be accredited by that agency. This is a large undertaking and carries with it the prestige of being the first clinical dietetics training program in Qatar and one of few programs in the Middle East. We wish Dr. Brown the best and know this is another opportunity for the Department of Nutrition Sciences to share pride in individual and thereby, departmental accomplishments.
