Earle Willard McHenry Award for Distinguished Service in Nutrition
This prestigious award is given annually in recognition of distinguished service in the field of nutrition by a Canadian or Canadian-based individual. The award is given for merit in teaching, in providing inspiration to students and colleagues, in providing leadership through professional associations resulting in significant progress in nutrition, in giving administrative or material support towards long-term development of outstanding nutritional or nutritionally-oriented programs, in research achievement which has led to service achievement, in stimulating the interest of students or in creating an atmosphere of public acceptance.
When submitting nominations, details of specific contributions made should be provided with the reasons for considering them to be particularly meritorious. Biographical material, although not essential in the assessment of merit, is helpful for arrangements to present the award.
The Award consists of a monetary award, a plaque, one complimentary registration to the CNS-SCN Annual Conference and two tickets to the Awards Banquet where the recipient will be honoured.
Nominations may be made by anyone. An anonymous committee, appointed by the Food for Health Foundation Board of Directors, will recommend the selected recipient of the Earle Willard McHenry Award.
