Holly Resuehr, PhD,  postdoctoral scholar with the Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC),  won an Outstanding Abstract Award for “Changes in osteocalcin and insulin sensitivity with weight loss through diet and exercise” at ENDO 2013,  The Endocrine Society’s annual meeting and expo, held this year in San Francisco from June 15-18. Members of The Endocrine Society  gather each year to exchange information and discover ideas for improving hormone research as well as the clinical practice of endocrinology.
Dr. Resuehr’s current research also includes examining the circadian impact on metabolic health of an egg-based breakfast compared with a higher carbohydrate breakfast and assessing the metabolic benefits of high intensity interval training versus continuous moderate intensity training in overweight adolescents. She conducts these studies under the mentorship of Professor Barbara A. Gower, PhD , with the Department of Nutrition Sciences;  Assistant Professor Gordon Fisher, PhD,  with NORC; and Professor Gary R. Hunter, PhD,  with the Department of Human Studies.
