The Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy

What We Do

What We Do

We train the next generation of top-flight nutrition professionals, at both the master’s and doctoral level, who are competent in both food and nutrition education and policy work. Please see the Nutrition Program website for more information on our graduate degree programs.

We collaborate with government and NYC institutions and community organizations to conduct ground-breaking research and evidence-based evaluations that link education to policy in ways that are useful to politicians and other decision-makers to make and implement effective policies as well as for implementing policy.

We work alongside various projects including those of the “Healthy Food and Community Change Initiative” of the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund to transform institutions and communities. Learn more about this initiative and for an infographic.
