The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics board of directors has selected Stella Cash to receive the academy’s 2019 Marjorie Hulsizer Copher Award. The award is the highest honor the academy presents to a member. It was awarded to Cash in recognition of her distinguished career and the many contributions she has made to the academy, its foundation, and the nutrition and dietetics profession.
Cash currently serves as a senior advisor to the president and provost of international engagement at MSU.
“The Marjorie Hulsizer Copher Award, which is the most prestigious honor of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, was first presented in 1945. Since its inception, the academy has grown to a membership of over 100,000, with only one recipient of the Copher award annually,” said Cash. “My nontraditional career in dietetics has centered on dietetic majors at MSU, serving as a consultant for companies such as Kellogg, and connecting people in this community through my work at Sparrow Health System, my service on numerous boards and contacts around the world.”
The Copher Award will be presented at the 2019 Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo on Oct. 26, in Philadelphia.
