FDN’s Dr. Emma Laing’s introductory Foods and Nutrition class is the featured theme on the Discover.uga site.
“My goal for this course is to empower students to take charge of their health through nutrition so they can reduce their risk of chronic diseases later in life,” said Laing, an associate research scientist and award-winning instructor in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences foods and nutrition department. “This is a practical course where students will gain information about healthy eating that will help them throughout the rest of their lives.”
