CPHR student Gioia Persuitte has a first author publication in Nutrients. The article is available to read at http://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/5/10/3910. It was one of four manuscripts that she worked on during her independent study over the summer which focused on applying the concepts of nutritional epidemiology to an NIH-funded dietary intervention trial: Can Do. Briefly, the Can Do study compared a simple dietary message of increasing fiber to a complex dietary message of the AHA diet among 240 participants with metabolic syndrome. Dr. Yunsheng Ma, Dr. Julia Fang, and Ms. Barbara Olendzki were the instructors for the course.
