Emily Krengel honored by IADN

The Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (IAND) awarded the Medallion Award to Emily Krengel, RD, LD, at the association’s annual meeting in Ames. She has been Cass County Health System’s dietitian for 41 years and also served as the Director of Food Services for 30 of those years.

According to the IAND, the Medallion Award may be awarded to no more than one person each year. The purpose of the award is “to recognize a member of IAND who has demonstrated leadership above and beyond job requirements in either the association or employment and has made outstanding contributions to the diabetic profession.” Selection criteria include being active in IAND as well as demonstrating leadership in national, state or district associations, being an outstanding mentor to younger professionals, and outstanding contributions to the profession.

“Emily certainly meets those criteria as she lives out our mission of providing superior experiences to everyone that we are privileged to serve,” noted Brett Altman, Cass County Health System CEO. “This award recognizes Emily’s leadership and the body of work she has done throughout her career here at Cass County Health System. While she has been a trailblazer in Cass County by reaching beyond the hospital walls, she has also earned the respect of her colleagues in this state and around the country.”
