Extension Staffer Recognized Regionally
Award for a CHAMPION
Dr. Tamara Warren recently received the regional 2020 Excellence in Extension Award from the Association of Extension Administrators (AEA) for her body of work in the area of family and consumer sciences.
Warren is an Alabama Extension health and nutrition specialist at Alabama A&M University (AAMU) who oversees several outreach initiatives, including the Technology Enhancing Exercise and Nutrition program. However, her most notable program is the Community Health Aerobic Motivational Program Initiating Optimal Nutrition, better known as CHAMPION.
Warren and her team of county agents have served an estimated 61,100 youth and adults in Alabama’s urban communities over the past 13 years.
“A CHAMPION team is built from the ground up to be a strong and powerful force that enlightens and impacts the community,” said Warren when it comes to serving Alabama audiences.
In addition, Warren has successfully pursued financial resources, including local and federal grants totaling $2.58 million dollars to support nutrition and health projects.
