Corrine Hanson, Ph.D., Leuschen Professor for Advancing Research in the Allied Health Sciences in the UNMC College of Allied Health Professions, is the new director for the college's Division of Medical Nutrition Education.

Glenda Woscyna is stepping down after a 20-year tenure as director. Dr. Hanson assumes the new role April 1.

"Dr. Hanson is an outstanding choice," said Kyle Meyer, Ph.D., dean of the College of Allied Health Professions. "She is internationally respected in her field, and I am confident she will lead our outstanding program and faculty to even greater successes.

"I want to thank Dr. Betsy Becker and the search committee for their work on behalf of the college."

Dr. Hanson, a 2018 UNMC Distinguished Scientist, specializes in research focused on nutrition in the developmental origins of disease and respiratory health. She has more than 200 presentations, publications and abstracts, and six book chapters, to her credit. She is principal- or co-investigator on numerous grants, and is currently program director of the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center Nutrition Excellence Initiative.
