Rebecca Shenkman MPH RDN LDN and Tracy Oliver PhD RDN LDN helped the College of Nursing's students, faculty and staff celebrate National Nutrition Month® by handing out free samples of healthy snacks and educational information on ways to eat better, and raffled off a gift basket filled with items that help make lunch time at work/school easier. National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This year the theme was Put Your Best Fork Forward.
