The UConn Nutrition Club

Members of UConn's Nutrition Club

This student-led organization promotes student participation in nutrition-related activities for the purpose of furthering nutrition knowledge, promoting healthful living, and enhancing career development.  It provides an excellent opportunity to reach out to the campus and community, as well as to promote leadership training. Activities include National Nutrition Month tabling events, dining hall events, volunteering at an afterschool program in Willimantic, collaborating with the Kidney Disease Screening and Awareness Program to conduct free screening events, participation in professional meetings and MANY more! We welcome ALL UConn students, regardless of their major area of study. We cater our meetings to direct our members, always taking into consideration what members want to see the club get involved in!
