FDN nutrition class featured on DiscoverUGA

September 4th, 2015

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.” 

Laing navigates students through the often confusing and overwhelming principles of nutrition, analyzing the science behind fad diets, supplements, sports nutrition, organic foods, GMOs, hidden sugars in food and more.
