The Face of Nutrition

Send in your submission for the cover of revised nutrition textbook

Faculty and grad assistants in the Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences department created an open-access online textbook to serve as an introduction to nutrition for undergraduate students. It covers basic concepts in human nutrition, key information about essential nutrients, basic nutritional assessment, and nutrition across the lifespan. They’re now looking for submissions for a new cover image for a revised edition! Image submissions should reflect food, nutrition, and the beautiful Hawaiian community.
