HNFE's unique fusion of nutrition and exercise sciences positions us as a leader in education, prevention, research, and translational studies.
We examine the psychosocial aspects of health, behavioral interventions, human performance, and youth and adult weight management with a focus on chronic disease and prevention.
Our mission is:
- to discover, translate, and disseminate health-related advances in the nutrition, food, and exercise sciences.
- promote health and wellness with an emphasis on translational science, service to the community, and providing quality education for students.
