A Trusted Voice for Nutrition

Making An Impact in 2018-19

Moving from scholarship to action requires getting the word out in a way that matters to the public. Our faculty, staff, researchers, alumni, and students are experts at translating cutting edge science and smart policy beyond the academy. This year, we awarded the inaugural $100,000 Jean Mayer Prize for Excellence in Nutrition Science and Policy, modeled the potential effects of "Food is Medicine" initiatives, and presented events including student-led policy groups and data summits. There's always something happening here to shape the food environment into a healthier and more equitable system.
