INP and Fuqua Graduate Seminar Series

Spring 2015 - Fridays at 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 was a faculty member in the Department of Foods and Nutrition at Purdue from 1963-1987.  While she was here she served as Department Head, Associate Dean of Home Economics Extension, and as Associate Dean of Consumer and Family Sciences.  The naming of this seminar series in memory of Dr. Fuqua is highly appropriate as Dr. Fuqua was passionate about giving high quality presentations and passing on this important skill to her students and colleagues.
