Tufts Health & Nutrition Letter
The goal of the Tufts Health & Nutrition Letter, a publication of Tufts Media at Tufts
University, is to provide the consumer with honest, reliable, scientifically authoritative
health and nutrition advice that not only can be trusted but can have a direct and often
immediate effort on their health.
The content of our newsletter is based substantially from the
research and expertise of the Gerald J.
and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.
This mission is fulfilled by bringing together experts from the areas of
clinical nutrition, social and public policy, and biomedicine. Faculty at the school include
anthropologists, biomedical scientists, economists, epidemiologists, nutritionists, physicians, political
scientists and psychologists who focus on a myriad of issues with the common thread of nutrition and its role
in fostering the growth and development of human populations.
Programs of study draw
upon the strength of Tufts University’s interdisciplinary approach
which involves Tufts’ seven other schools, the Jean
Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research
Center on Aging and the Frances
Stern Nutrition Center.
