Students in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies engage in transdisciplinary research and gain practical experience that improves public health.
The Department of Nutrition and Food Studies
The Department of Nutrition and Food Studies prepares students to address public health issues involving nutrition and food access and is the only program of its kind in northern Virginia. Our undergraduate and graduate programs train students to engage in nutrition and food-related planning, practice, and research. Our students combine the science of nutrition with the culture of food to impact society and influence behavior changes that improve public health and people’s access to quality food sources.
Celebrate Public Health Event
Celebrate Public Health is an appreciation event for our community that showcases the College of Public Health and the many (sometimes surprising) ways public health impacts our lives. Join fellow alumni, faculty, staff, and supporters as we celebrate our College of Public Health and explore how having an interprofessional college of public health benefits the community through interactive activities, food, toasts, free parking, and more.
