Community Nutrition and Health Interventions (CNHI) Lab

Our lab is driven by a vision of a world free from diet-related illness, where all communities achieve food security and consume nutritious and safe food and beverages every day. Our lab's mission is to improve nutrition outcomes by investigating and addressing the underlying causes of under and over nutrition in various population groups and to develop culturally sensitive and sustainable solutions to both domestic and international nutrition challenges. Our modus operandi is to identify the nutritional needs of a community group through situational analysis, obtaining community participation, and implementing solutions to the identified problems through applied scientific research projects linked to graduate studies, thus applied research based on community needs.
