Alicia Carriquiry, statistics professor at Iowa State University (ISU), was recently elected to the National Academy of Medicine.

Carriquiry was elected to the organization due to her advancements in the fields of nutrition and dietary assessment.

“I’m so honored, flattered and humbled: it’s very rewarding,” she said. “In life you have successes and failures, and to receive a recognition like this makes you realize that all the hard work throughout your career was worth it.”

Carriquiry is one of two ISU faculty members -- out of 70 new members total -- to be inducted into the National Academy of Medicine.

“To have two Iowa State faculty elected to the National Academy of Medicine is an outstanding achievement,” ISU President Steven Leath said. “It is a well-deserved recognition of Dr. Carriquiry’s and Dr. Roth’s commitment to service and advancing research in their fields.”
