We are delighted to learn that Professor Ann Prentice, a longstanding member of our Nutrition committee, has been awarded a CBE in the 2024 New Years Honours List for her services to British and Global Public Health Nutrition.

Her research is focused on lifecourse nutritional requirements for population health, with an emphasis on calcium and vitamin D, and encompasses the nutritional problems of both affluent and resource-limited societies. Ann is a research scientist with a strong commitment to the translation of scientific evidence into policy and practice. She was Chair of the UK Scientific Advisory Committee from 2010 to 2020 and holds, or has held, other official positions and memberships of government committees, royal colleges and international agencies, research councils and universities, learned societies and research charities.

We congratulate Ann on this great achievement.
