Getting Involved with SPIN
Students educating students is based on the belief that students are more receptive and learn better from informed and educated peers. Acquiring knowledge, skills and confidence helps SPIN members enhance their own knowledge, attitudes and beliefs related to nutrition education topics.
New SPIN members will complete extensive training during the fall semester. Once trained, students can expect to spend 1-3 hours/week attending a weekly SPIN meetings and developing, marketing and implementing programs or tabling. Some students may be able to receive up to four academic credits for being involved with SPIN.
