Welcome to Spring 2020!

Thank you for your interest in the courses I teach this semester.

I am excited to welcome you my nutrition courses! We will learn about nutrition fundamentals as well as recent discoveries in this young and evolving field of science. I hope you will find the readings, activities, and discussions interesting and relevant. I also hope you will feel empowered to eat well with your knowledge of nutrition, will appreciate the connections between nutrition and health, and will consider creative ways to support good nutrition at home and in your communities. We will explore these topics and more through readings, reflections, group activities, and discussions.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about current and/or future courses.
