Each year, the Women's Health DPG selects 2 student members to receive the Outstanding Student Award. These awards bring recognition to deserving students who have been involved in women’s health issues and/or are considering a dietetic career involving women’s health. The awards also bring with them a monetary gift of $250 for each student selected. Certificates will be presented at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE®). Selection is based on meeting any of the following criteria:
- Participated and provided leadership in WH DPG activities, such as committee service, newsletter contributions, and/or involvement in association activities at district, state and national levels.
- Demonstrated active involvement in health-related organizations (professional and voluntary), such as officer and/or committee work in area, state, national organizations.
- Developed, or was a contributor to, innovative approaches to the practice of nutrition in women’s health for research and/or publications.
