National Dairy Council’s Greg Miller, Ph.D. — who serves as chief science officer, Global Dairy Platform’s nutrition sector lead, and special counsel to the CEO on global nutrition affairs — was recently recognized with four prestigious awards and honors. Rosemont, Ill.-based Dairy Management Inc. (DMI), which manages National Dairy Council, said Miller has been synonymous with dairy science and nutrition since joining the council in 1992. He is also a longtime Dairy Foods columnist.
The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and the ASN Foundation presented Miller with its 2022 Industry Recognition Award, acknowledging significant contributions to the field of nutrition science or practice by an individual from the industry sector, DMI said. Miller also is being inducted into the ASN and ASN Foundation Class of 2022 Fellows, one of just 14 receiving this honor. This is the highest honor ASN bestows, recognizing individuals for significant discoveries and distinguished careers in the field of nutrition. Miller is recognized for having a significant impact in nutrition and on his colleagues.
In addition, his alma mater is presenting Miller with the 2022 Penn State Graduate School Alumni Society Lifetime Achievement Award. This award recognizes alumni who have achieved exceptional success throughout their career and have demonstrated loyalty to the university and the Penn State Alumni Association, DMI said. The Penn State board of trustees also presented Miller with the Distinguished Alumni Award, the university’s highest alumni honor.
“Greg is a credible, leading voice for the U.S. dairy industry and epitomizes the importance of leading with sound dairy research and science,” said Barbara O’Brien, CEO of DMI. “While Greg has engaged with leading health and wellness organizations across the world throughout his distinguished career, he always maintains his passion for farmers and proudly carries with him their story of producing nutritious food in a responsible way.
“We congratulate Greg for these well-deserved recognitions and thank him for being a tireless advocate for America’s dairy farmers,” she added.
