Student Outreach

The Telenutrition Center is made up of a very collaborative team which also includes our Student Outreach Section. We have students with various majors such as Nutrition and Dietetics, Computer Science, as well as Biological Science. We have Student Research Assistants that work with our team year round as well as Outreach Scholars that add to the impact of the Telenutrition Center through research and outreach activities.
“Working with The Telenutrition Center has allowed me to gain a better understanding on community outreach. I’m excited to apply it to my future practice as a Registered Dietitian.”

“The Mississippi INBRE research project has allowed me to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team to work toward understanding health disparities. This is an incredible way to experience how a post-graduate research team will operate!”
