Colgate Palmolive Fellowship in Nutrition, Oral Health/Dental Education
  • The Colgate Palmolive Fellowship in Nutrition, Oral Health/Dental Education is given to support research in nutrition and oral health or dental education by a student in a master’s, doctoral or post-doctoral program in dietetics/nutrition or public health nutrition with an expressed interest in nutrition and oral health/dental education.  The 2014 recipient is Heidi Lee Ganzer, MS for her research proposal titled: “Exploring the Eating Experience in Long Term Survivors of Head and Neck Cancer.”
     
    Ganzer said of being selected to receive the grant, “I am honored to have been chosen as the recipient of the Colgate Palmolive Fellowship award.  The award will most certainly help defray the costs of my research, which is greatly appreciated.  The population that I work with, long term survivors of head and neck cancer, may struggle with late effects of their treatment (i.e. xerostomia, dysguesia, mucosal sensitivity, dental health issues, etc.).  These late effects may impact the ability to eat or enjoy the eating experience.  The Colgate Palmolive Fellowship award is a perfect fit for this research!”
     
    The deadline to apply for the 2015 Colgate Fellowship is April 1, 2015. The award amount is $15,000. Non-US residents may apply.  For more information or to download an application, please visit: http://www.eatright.org/Foundation/content.aspx?id=6998
