Food & Nutrition

Food & Nutrition is focused on bringing together stakeholders from across Duke, including nutritionists, students, farmers, faculty, policy experts, and dining administrators to catalogue the food and nutrition resources that currently exist, identify where there are additional needs, and make recommendations for addressing those needs. In this effort, the Food & Nutrition working group will develop clear goals and success measures for guiding and tracking Duke’s progress as it works to become the healthiest campus in the United States.

Co-conveners:
Anthony Viera, MD, MPH, Chair of Department of Family Medicine and Community Health
Marcus Carson, Duke Dining, Assistant Director for Sustainability & Quality Control
