Dr. Michael McIntosh, professor in UNCG’s Department of Nutrition, works on identifying dietary components that might help with the treatment of obesity and side effects associated with being overweight. His work, funded by the National Institute of Health, earned him UNCG’s nomination for the O. Max Gardner award. An essential part of his work is mentoring the students on his research team. “My contribution is really helping mentor these students who are asking very important questions related to how to solve the obesity epidemic – and I see my role is helping these students once they finish go out and make strides in helping combat the obesity epidemic.” As one student researcher says in this short clip. “He puts us together and we work as a team and he’s a leader.”
