Millicent Yeboah-Awudzi

Louisiana State University
Graduate Assistant and PhD Student
Millicent found fulfillment in a career in the Food Sciences as a way of contributing to national development and the global food supply. With new lifestyles, imported dietary practices, and globalization taking root in Africa, chronic diseases such as diabetes and its complications have now been considered an epidemic in Africa. As an entrepreneur and a food scientist, Millicent decided to look more into the health benefits of hibiscus, the main ingredient of her beverage industry and prebiotics. She is working towards her Ph.D. degree at Louisiana State University with her research focused on bioactive compounds such as prebiotic and anthocyanin metabolites and the effect of these compounds on reducing inflammation in chronic diseases.
