Reynaldo Martorell

Nutrition expert Reynaldo Martorell received the 2008 Marion V. Creekmore Award for Internationalization. The annual award honors a faculty member for furthering Emory’s commitment to building a global society.

Martorell, Robert W. Woodruff Professor of International Nutrition, is known for his longitudinal studies in maternal and child nutrition and his research on micronutrient malnutrition. Also chair of the Hubert Department of Global Health, he has increased faculty and student numbers and expanded research and academic programs.

"Dr. Martorell has improved the lives of countless citizens in the developing world," says Holli Semetko, Emory vice provost of international affairs. "His voice in the struggle to fight malnutrition can be heard around the world."

Coca-Cola executive Claus M. Halle established the Creekmore Award in 2000. A former diplomat, Creekmore was Emory's first vice provost for international affairs.
