Congratulations, Professor Gnau!
The Missouri Council for Activity and Nutrition (MOCAN) awarded Jaime Gnau, a registered dietitian nutritionist and clinical instructor of dietetics at Missouri State University, with the Excellence in Connecting Health to the Community award.
The award recognizes a Missouri healthcare professional who goes above and beyond to promote healthy eating and active living in his or her community.
The program was a huge success and is still active.
As of August 2021, the clinic has distributed 30,427 pounds of food, which equates to 25,355 meals.
MSU Care clinic faculty and staff volunteer once a month to make the food distribution program happen.
“Recovery takes a multimodal assessment, meaning you have to use multiple methods to determine where their problems are, where they lie,” Carr said. “You need to use a team approach of specialists. No one person can do it all.”
Carr discusses more about concussions in March’s “Health Queries” episode.
