Retired Houston campus faculty member Carolyn E. Moore, PhD has established an endowment to support graduate research assistantships in the field of nutrition. Assistantships are a core requirement of the master’s and doctoral nutrition programs and this endowment will fund one research assistantship each year.
Moore served on the faculty at the TWU Houston campus for 15 years dedicating her efforts to teaching, mentoring and conducting research. Her research focused on food insecurity among college students, nutrition garden programs for children, the relationship of Vitamin D to cardiovascular disease, and obesity in adults and children. This is the second endowment Moore has established to support nutrition students at TWU.
