The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health's Nourish Program has established a nutrition hub in the heart of the Texas Medical Center providing a unique training ground for students, health care professionals, and community members from across Texas and nationwide. This first of its kind initiative educates and equips participants with the tools, knowledge, and hands-on experience necessary to prevent and address nutrition-related health conditions.The initiative also facilitates collaborative inter-institutional research.
In addition, the Nourish Program has brought training of health professionals in line with several national initiatives and guidelines. This innovative program has closed the gap in nutrition training and education research among students, health care professionals, and community members to ultimately lower rates of obesity and nutrition-related chronic diseases.
The Nourish Program features three state-of-the-art integrated facilities – a Research and Development Kitchen, Holistic Garden, and Simulation Lab.
This program is in partnership with the Tulane University Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine and delivered through the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living.
The Nourish Program is housed at UTHealth School of Public Health, 1200 Pressler St, Houston, TX 77030.
