Congratulations to former TAC Chair Dr. Kathleen Liang, who was awarded a new grant, released a new publication, and was featured in AAA Magazine.

Dr. Liang was awarded a grant from the USDA Hatch Grant and Department of Agriculture in Hawaii to study Agri-tainment operations in Hawaii, where she will travel for her research. The title of the project is "Exploring and Examining Impacts of Agri-tainment Operations on the Long Term Sustainability and Prosperity of Farmers and Rural Communities in Hawaii". The award is for $25,000 and the project will run from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016.

She, along with several collaborators, also had a new publication accepted in the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development titled Research Market and Supply Chain Opportunities for Local Food Systems: Setting Priorities and Identifying Linkages.
