Research

The Health Cohort is currently working in collaboration with the Student Health and Counseling Center on Partnership for America's Healthier Campus Initiative. Fresno state has committed to implementing 23 guidelines around physical activity, nutrition, and programming to make the campus healthier. The health cohort is currently evaluating how guideline implementation around the physical activity environment is influencing the health of the the campus community. Next, we will be looking at guidelines around the nutrition environment. Faculty are engaging students in this research and six students were awarded research mini-grants to explore the healthy changes that are being made on campus.
