KALAMAZOO--Dr. Ann Veeck, associate professor of marketing at Western Michigan University, was recently honored as the Outstanding Scholar on the Practice of Marketing in China by the Society for Marketing Advances and the Golden Tripod Marketing Awards Committee in China.

Veeck, who has repeatedly visited China over the past decade, has conducted research on changing family and food consumption patterns in urban areas of that country.

The award program through which she was honored is designed to encourage American scholars to focus their research on China and on advancing the practice of marketing in that fast-growing market. The award was based on her research record in that country.
