Zara Berg has stepped up to assume the role of volunteer Executive Director at FIHRI. She first learned of FIHRI’s mission and work while teaching science at the Fort Peck Community College in Montana in 2011. At that time, Professor Dufault asked her to collaborate on the proposed research project that involved the development and evaluation of the online macroepigenetics nutrition intervention course. Zara was instrumental in ensuring the IRB protocol was followed at the community level as participants enrolled in the course and clinical trial. At the same time, Zara served as the chairwoman of Fort Peck’s Tribal IRB. She was also the chair of the science department. She comes to FIHRI with terrific experience in conducting community based clinical research. With a Master’s degree in interdisciplinary toxicology from Texas A & M University, she is well qualified to help direct FIHRI’s operations. Zara is currently enrolled at the University of Hawai’i and pursuing her doctorate degree in biomedical and clinical research.
