This award recognizes members who demonstrate leadership in evidence-based practice through significant or ongoing contributions to the PEN: Practice-based Evidence in Nutrition® system.
The 2019 recipient, Andrea Buchholz, is an absolute champion for training evidence based, effective dietitians. Andrea not only encourages students training to be dietitians to use evidence but also supports them to create and synthesize evidence for PEN, in a positive and enthusiastic manner. The strength of our profession depends on our strong students becoming strong dietitians. Andrea is recognized with the 2019 PEN®
Achiever (Canada) Award for her commitment to PEN through her personal contributions and her countless contributions through students.
