Graduate and undergraduate students to present research at Nutrition 2024 in Chicago.

Congratulations to Helena Ge (Sargent ’25, M.S./DPD/DI) and Sorochi Anyaibe (Sargent ’25, B.S. Health Science) whose abstract submissions on their research with Dr McCrory to Nutrition 2024 were accepted. The meeting takes place in June/July 2024.

Ms Ge will be presenting some results of her study on the safety, feasibility, and compliance with wearing the AIM-2 for assessing dietary intake in patients with chronic kidney disease. The study was a collaboration with Dr Vipul Chitalia at Boston Medical Center and Edward Sazonov from the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. Several Eating Patterns and Metabolism Lab members assisted with the study including Sorochi Anyaibe, Yunkeli Lin (Sargent ’24, B.S. Nutrition/Dietetics), Manan Patel (Sargent ’24, B.S. Human Physiology), and Tianran Ye (Sargent ’22, B.S. Nutrition/Dietetics; Sargent ’24, M.S./DPD) and coauthored the abstract. 

Ms Anyaibe will be presenting some results of her study investigating the timing of eating and energy intake in urban and rural households in Ghana which were assessed using images time stamps from the AIM-2, a wearable camera. That study was part of a larger research project funded by the Bill&Melinda Gates Foundation and with research collaborators from the University of Georgia, the University of Alabama, the University of Pittsburgh, Baylor College of Medicine, University College London, and the University of Ghana.
