Students Promoting Information on Nutrition, also known as SPIN,
is a great organization on campus to get involved in that is run by UNH Health
Services. These mentors are student volunteers that get trained to counsel and
educate those who are looking to for more knowledge and assistance in the field
of nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. These students receive intensive training
and education by trained professionals in the field, and are well equipped to
help others with questions regarding nutrition.

SPIN promotes campus wide awareness of healthy eating, and you can
often find them around campus tabling information and marketing ways to live a
healthy lifestyle. They have been known to do food cooking demonstrations on
campus, as well as distributing informational handouts

One has to apply to be a part of SPIN and in the fall semester
each year, those new members will be trained intensively to aid fellow
students. One can even get up to four class credits just for being a part of
SPIN!

If you are looking to join SPIN, or even seek help from the
student mentors, you can find out more information at the UNH Health Services website.
