Our History

HEN DPG was borne from the mergers of two distinct DPGs in 2000. This merger brought together members from the Environmental Nutrition DPG and Hunger and Malnutrition DPG. The Hunger and Malnutrition DPG was founded in 1993 by Minkie Medora and Rena Pendergast. The Environmental Nutrition DPG was founded separately by Susan Cooper in 1994.
