Ever wonder what kind of resources are available on campus for educating students about nutrition? There is a great program that is facilitated by health services that does just that. SPIN, Students Promoting Information About Nutrition consists of students and nutrition educators at health services that provides nutrition education to enhance the well-being of UNH students. SPIN members talk about all types of nutrition, for example how to navigate the grocery store and healthy post and pre workout snacks, as well as other areas of nutrition like body image and eating concerns. Members hold events outside of the campus recreation center and other locations to provide information and educational materials. SPIN members also reach out to residence halls, Greek houses, and other groups to talk to students about various nutrition topics. The members of SPIN are highly educated and extensively trained students here at UNH.

This type of Nutrition Education and Promotion is great because it is coming from your peers. The members of this program are ordinary UNH students who happen to have a passion for health and wellness and want to spread the word. These students are a wealth of knowledge and can relate with difficulty of keeping proper nutrition in college. This program takes a non-diet approach to healthy eating and helps students work on a positive body image and relationship with food. Look for members of SPIN outside of dining halls and campus recreation and ask them about any nutrition related questions you might have and they will guide you in the right direction. If you’d like to get involved with SPIN or to learn more about this program, visit the SPIN website to request a program or to get information about recruitment. Don’t hesitate; educate yourself in the area of nutrition!
