Christine Stewart has been selected to receive the 2018 Norman Kretchmer Memorial Award in Nutrition and Development. This American Society for Nutrition (ASN) award is given to a young investigator for a substantial body of independent research in the field of nutrition and development with potential relevance to improving child health. Awards will be presented at Nutrition 2018, ASN's new flagship meeting being held June 9-12, 2018 in Boston. Dr. Stewart´s research is related to maternal and child nutrition in low income communities, primarily in developing country settings. Her focus is on both the immediate and long-term effects of poor nutrition during pregnancy and early childhood on birth outcomes, infant and child survival, child growth, and risk of chronic disease in later life.
