Samford University professor Patricia Hart Terry was named a 2011 Outstanding Dietetics Educator by the American Dietetic Association (ADA) at the ADA regional practice group meeting March 4 in San Antonio, Texas.
Dr. Terry, who teaches dietetics and nutrition in Samford’s Exercise Science and Sports Medicine Department, was one of seven nationally recognized Didactic Program in Dietetics Directors to receive the award. In a letter from ADA President Judith Rodriguez, Terry was noted as one who “exemplifies the values of the Association and plays a vital role in leading the future of dietetics in serving as a role model to dietetics students.”
The award recognizes the teaching, mentoring and leadership activities of faculty and preceptors in dietetics education programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education.
Terry has been a member of the Samford faculty since 1990.
