When (Sarah) Jane Voichick, PhD, served as president in 2003, the importance of nutrition education and the need to conduct nutrition education research to improve effectiveness of nutrition education was becoming more widely accepted, which is one of the many highlights of her presidency.
With a Bachelors in Psychology from Oberlin College and a Masters and Doctorate in Nutritional Sciences from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Voichick said SNE was a very important factor in her professional development and personal growth.
“It offered an opportunity for leadership development and also provided a network of colleagues interested in nutrition education research and practice, as well as food policy,” she said. “This was influential in my own research and education efforts.”
Now retired, Voichick participates in local boards and volunteer leadership in her senior living residency. She was previously a faculty member at UW-Madison.
