Walch is currently a term assistant professor in the Culinary Arts, Hospitality, Dietetics & Nutrition Division where she also coordinates the dietetic internship program.

Delta Omega elects new students, faculty, alumni and honorary members based on high academic standards and outstanding performance in scholarship, teaching, research and community service. Induction into Delta Omega is highly selective. UAA’s Gamma Iota chapter extends membership to just five alumni annually whose work in public health serves as a model for future graduates. Membership is designed not only to recognize merit but also to encourage excellence in and devotion to public health work.
