Cynthia Klobodu (Department of Nutrition and Food Science) co-authored an article titled “Optimizing Fertility Treatments with Nutritional Guidance: Exploring Barriers and Facilitators to Healthful Nutrition Among Female Cancer Survivors with Fertility Challenges.” The piece was published in Integrative Cancer Therapies and researchers conducted in-depth interviews with young, female cancer survivors with fertility challenges to collect information about their dietary intake and help inform the development of dietary interventions for this population.

Matthew Stone (Department of Marketing) published two peer-reviewed articles on consumer behavior in food & beverage tourism: “Consumption Value in Food Tourism: The Effects on Purchase Involvement and Post-Travel Behaviors” appears in Tourism Recreation Research, and “Beer traveler, wine traveler, or both? Comparing beer tourist and wine tourist segments” was published in Tourism Analysis.
