Dr. Sharonda Wallace, Human Nutrition & Food Science Department in the College of Agriculture, has been selected to participate in the “Professions Capacity Building Program,” which is jointly sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. The program provides skills development through three program components: workshop presentations, experiential training and participation in an online course. Participants will receive all travel and lodging expenses, along with a modest stipend. The two-day workshop presentations are held in San Antonio, Texas, in June and August or September, and a week-long workshop in Bethesda, Md., in July. The Bethesda workshop will include a visit to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where NIH staff will host a multi-day session that includes an overview of the NIH and various NIH funding opportunities. Wallace is completing her second year of the Provost’s Teacher-Scholar Program.
