VT News: Deborah Good recognized with inaugural Inclusive Excellence Fellow Award

February 28, 2020

Upon receiving the award, Good said that “as a first-generation college student, and a woman, I never considered graduate school until I experienced research during a summer program and did a year-long independent study in a professor’s lab. The SUNY-Fredonia chapter of the Sigma Xi honor society honored me with a research award which validated me as a researcher and scientist.”

Fueled by her desire to introduce research to undergraduate students and give them recognition for their findings in science, Good has embraced her role as leader of departmental change within human nutrition, foods and exercise.
