Interview Summary

In this third interview, Hazel Forsythe discusses her career in academia and at the University of Kentucky. She states that her greatest rewards come from teaching and with helping women during pregnancy. She describes the importance of communication in her field and states that she feels well-informed about matters at UK and in her college and department. Forsythe discusses the effect of her work on her family and the effect of her family upon her work. She states that her frustrations in her work involve students not taking full advantage of the opportunities available to them.

She describes how her time is split between teaching, research, working with students, and administrative work. She states that the most important problem that she is working on is trying to find nutritional risks for pregnant women. Forsythe describes the classes that she teaches, which include Maternal and Child Nutrition and Community Nutrition.
