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.
Taking learning outside the classroom, HNFE first year students and their instructor take a regular activity challenge of climbing stairs at Lane Stadium!
