In celebration of Black History Month, the American Society for Nutrition is sharing stories from its diverse membership. Black researchers have played an important role in nutrition science and continue to make meaningful contributions to public health. The Association for the Study of African American Life and History shared that when Negro History week was first started by Carter G. Woodson, he desired to provide a theme to each year’s month to call attention to important developments in Black culture. This year’s theme is Black Health and Wellness so we are proud to present an interview series featuring ASN members who work to advance public health and wellness through nutrition.

ASN’s Mission is to advance the science, education, and practice of nutrition with a vision of a healthier world through evidence-based nutrition. To get us there, we recognize that it will take the entire nutrition community, made up of individuals with diverse experiences, perspectives, and ideas to make our vision a reality. This diversity is the fundamental strength of our professional society.
