Food for Health Initiative

University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds, PhD has announced a university-wide Food for Health initiative.  This program is designed to increase multicampus collaborations and incentivize new research that will address critical food and health issues important to Nebraskans.

Faculty are invited to complete an interest survey in preparation for a team building retreat planned for November 13th in Lincoln.

Dr. Jennifer Larsen, Vice Chancellor for Research, conducted a Q & A forum for UNMC faculty to answer questions regarding the topics, collaborative teams, and funding opportunities associated with the Food for Health initiative.
