LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center at Arkansas Children's Hospital will have a new director for the first time in nearly 20 years.

The hospital says Sean Adams will serve as the center's director beginning in October. He'll also be professor and chief of the Division of Developmental Nutrition at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

Adams is now an associate professor at the University of California, Davis, and is a research leader with the USDA's Western Human Nutrition Research Center.

The Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center was established in 1995 and is a partnership between Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Institute, UAMS, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Adams will succeed the center's founding director, Thomas M. Badger, who plans to continue his research on maternal and childhood nutrition.
