2013 Early Career Research Award: Dr. Christopher Taveau
The Hydration for health Initiative Young Researcher Award, that was awarded for the first time in 2012, recognizes innovative research in the fields of hydration and health.
During 2012 many exciting abstracts were submitted to the H4H Initiative and the winning abstract was selected from a short list of twelve submissions by the H4H Initiative Expert Working Group, a team of international hydration and health experts.
The committee based its decision on the scientific merit of the research and its potential in driving forward the science of healthy hydration.
