Aim & Scope
Founded in 1983 by Tufts University President Jean Mayer, the Tufts Health and Nutrition Letter is an outreach program of Tufts University and the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts. The goal of the Tufts Health & Nutrition Letter is to provide the consumer with honest, reliable, scientifically authoritative health and nutrition advice that not only can be trusted but can have a direct and often immediate effort on their health. The content of our newsletter is based substantially on the research and expertise of the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. This mission is fulfilled by bringing together experts from the areas of clinical nutrition, social and public policy, and biomedicine. Faculty at the school include anthropologists, biomedical scientists, economists, epidemiologists, nutritionists, physicians, political scientists and psychologists who focus on a myriad of issues with the common thread of nutrition and its role in fostering the growth and development of human populations.
