The Award recognizes individuals for “exceptional creativity and scholarship in the development, application and evaluation of outreach, extension and public service programs,” according to a press release.

Nancy Hartley, interim-dean of the College of Applied Human Sciences, said Pat Kendall –– who is also the associate dean for research in the College of Applied Human Sciences –– has an exceptional record of integrating research into outreach programs in food safety and chronic disease prevention.

“She has developed a reputation as one of the top experts in the country in food safety education,” Hartley said in the same press release.
