The Purdue University Nutrition Education Program is helping to build a healthier Indiana.
All over Indiana, we’re working to improve community wellness and health equity for all Hoosiers, especially those of us who have the least, through two major offerings: direct education and community wellness initiatives. We partner with local advocates, community organizations, and government agencies to make food and exercise accessible in Indiana.
