Rourke Receives Ohio Dietetic Research Award

Cincinnati—Kathleen Rourke, PhD, associate dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences, has received the Ohio Dietetic Association Research award at the group's annual meeting in Dayton. Her current research explores the effects of weight and body composition changes on bone mass in adolescent females.

Earlier this year, Rourke was selected as one of eight members from four-year institutions nationwide for a Leadership Coalition Conference. Sponsored by the Association for Schools for Allied Health Professionals, Association for Two-Year Colleges, and the Health Professions Network, the coalition was developed and funded by a grant from the federal government to train and develop leaders of allied health for the new millennium. Two one-week sessions are offered with programs on legislative process and development of leadership skills.
