We wish to congratulate two FScN Alumni who were recognized at the CFANS Borealis Night of Excellence Awards!

Sarah Lindholm received a BS in Nutrition from FScN in 2012 and was selected as the 2021 Borealis Exemplary Staff Member Awardee. Sarah currently serves as an academic advisor for several CFANS majors, including our Nutrition program. She is well-known for her extremely friendly and open personality, her holistic understanding of the curricula she advises on, and her problem solving skills. Sarah’s technical knowledge of the content of the Nutrition major has helped the program to develop the curriculum and optimize the student experience, and her care for the students that she helps to navigate the University is truly outstanding. The Department is honored to have an alum like Sarah making our College a better place! 

Patricia Booth, who received her BS in Nutrition & Dietetics from FScN in 1977, was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Borealis Award. After graduating, she went on to receive her Master’s in Nutrition and Medical Dietetics from the University of Illinois- Chicago. Patricia has since had a long and prestigious career as a dietitian, DPD Director, Dietetic Internship Director, and educator of future dietitians in her roles at UC- Berkeley and UC- San Francisco.
