CWN publishes nutrition research in the Journal of Nutritional Sciences

Research by the Center for Wellness and Nutrition, a program of the Public Health Institute, with colleagues from the University of California, Davis, and four universities in the Southeast, was recently published in the Journal of Nutritional Sciences. The findings show that low-income residents of eight Southeast states, where obesity rates are among the highest nationally, consumed significantly greater amounts of fruits and vegetables, and improved several other shopping and nutrition-related behaviors following participation in United States Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education programs.
