Support Nutrition and Health

The Program is grateful for the financial support we continue to receive from our alumni and friends. Gifts made to the Program allow us to pursue our mission and goals and greatly enrich students’ experiences at the University of Washington.

Generous gifts allowed us to develop new undergraduate courses in nutrition and food systems that led to a very successful undergraduate Minor and have supported the shaping of an undergraduate curriculum that will include courses on how to eat better. Gifts have supported the professional training of Registered Dietitians who will promote better diets the at community level.

There are two funds that support our educational mission:

Nutritional Sciences Undergraduate Program Fund

Gifts to the Undergraduate Program Fund support our teaching of undergraduates about personal and public health nutrition. Gift funds supported the development of several courses that focused on the role of nutrition in preventing disease, nutrient needs across the lifespan, and the study of food systems and food policy. These courses enabled us to launch the undergraduate Nutritional Sciences Minor. We would like to see a Nutrition and Food Systems Major as well.

Nutritional Sciences Support Fund

The Nutritional Sciences Support Fund nourishes our graduate students. These gift funds have been used to provide scholarships, support innovative thesis projects on community health, and allow students to present at professional conferences. These activities enrich students’ experiences and prepare them for a professional career in health.
