INP and Fuqua Graduate Seminar Series

Fall 2017 – Fridays, 10:30 - 11:20am, BRNG 2290

The Fuqua Graduate Student Seminar Series in Nutrition Science is named in memory of the life and career of Dr. Mary Fuqua. Dr. Fuqua served as a faculty member in Nutrition Science (formerly the Department of Foods and Nutrition) at Purdue University from 1963 to 1987. During her tenure, she held positions as Department Head, Associate Dean of Home Economics Extension, and Associate Dean of (the former) School of Consumer and Family Sciences. Naming this seminar series in memory of Dr. Fuqua is fitting as she was passionate about giving high-quality presentations and teaching this important skill to her students and colleagues.
