Dr Kay Nguo from the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics was recently awarded the Jenny Keating Early Career Researcher Publication Prize for Nursing and Allied Health Research for her systematic review and meta-analysis of the effect of meal intake on postprandial appetite-related gastrointestinal hormones in obese children. Her paper was published in the International Journal of Obesity.
Dr Nguo said she was honoured and delighted to be the recipient of the 2017 Jenny Keating Early Career Researcher Publication Prize for Nursing and Allied Health.
"I am grateful to the Faculty for this award and thank my co-authors for their contributions," Dr Nguo said.
Dr Nguo will use the prize money to attend the 4th International Conference on Recent Advances and Controversies in Measuring Energy Metabolism (RACMEM) in Switzerland later this year.
