The Mission of the Nutrition Peer Education Program is to promote healthy eating habits through the implementation of national nutrition guidelines for good health on our campus. We will achieve this by targeting issues like stress eating, eating in the Caf, and common food misconceptions. We promote the consumption of real, whole foods and work to combat current health trends/fads with the latest scientific findings in nutrition.
