The Best Food 5 April 2019

The Best Food

Getting hungry? Well, if you’re on the UHM campus, you’re in luck—did you know the campus’s food is rated as the best in the country, according to Forbes Magazine? And this is thanks in no small part to Donna Ojiri, an alumna of HNFAS’ FSHN program, who runs the Sodexo Hawaii food service program.

 

To Animal Sciences, With Love 6 March 2019

To Animal Sciences, With Love

Alumna Teresa Morishita has established a scholarship through UH Foundation. Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and a professor of Poultry Medicine & Food Safety at Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine, she is a 1984 graduate of CTAHR’s undergrad Animal Sciences program and has fond memories of many ANSC faculty members.

Give Healthfully 6 March 2019

Give Healthfully

A cheering chili pepper? A talking tomato? No, they’re dietetics and FSHN students from HNFAS! Monica Esquivel and the nutrition students are featured and thanked in a video recently created by the American Heart Association for their annual Heart Ball. The video, which was shared with over 1200 Heart Ball attendees, highlights the Kokua the Need campaign to which the dietetics students and Monica contributed.

What to Eat 22 February 2019

What to Eat

The nutritional health of all Americans is informed by a federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee—which now includes CTAHR’s own Rachel Novotny (HNFAS). Appointed by Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Rachel will be joining 19 other nationally recognized scientists on this independent advisory committee.
