Funding towards increasing hours for our Wellness Dietitian

 

The impact of nutrition and healthy eating on a college campus is threefold, affecting academic, emotional and physical performance. Healthy Ospreys Eat Well campaign focuses on creating a healthy university environment that promotes healthy eating habits and provides a variety of choices for a wholesome diet. This campaign will not be successful without our on campus Registered Dietitian.
