Carriquiry named to National Academy of Medicine

Alicia Carriquiry, an Iowa State University Distinguished Professor of statistics, has been elected to the National Academy of Medicine. She is being recognized for her work in advancing the understanding of nutrition and dietary assessment, and was among the 70 new members and nine international members the academy announced Monday.

Carriquiry began her post-doctoral academic career as a research assistant at the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development. Over the years, she has continued to collaborate with CARD researchers on CARD series papers and journal articles.

James Roth, a Distinguished Professor of veterinary microbiology and preventive medicine, was also selected for induction this year. Roth and Carriquiry join ISU’s two previous professors named to the NAM, Catherine Woteki (1998) and Diane Birt (2015).
