Nutrition student recognized for significant research into obesity

When grad student Michael Wong (PhD, Nutrition Science) submitted his first paper—ever!—to the Journal of Obesity, he didn’t know what he was setting in motion. Not only was it accepted for publication; it was selected as one of the top five submissions of the year, praised as a study that “significantly furthers our scientific understanding of obesity.”

Now his paper, titled “Children and Adolescent’s Anthropometrics Body Composition from 3D Optical Surface Scans,” is going to be published and featured in the November issue of Obesity and will appear prominently in a press release that the Obesity Society will issue then. In addition, he has been asked to attend the society’s ObesityWeek event in Las Vegas in November to present the paper in person in a special session.
