Higher Education

For the majority of students enrolled in WV colleges and universities this is their first experience of living away from home. Thus, this is perhaps the first time they have been in control of making decisions regarding their eating choices and physical activity levels. This population has also been historically a difficult population to intervene in. Therefore we believe that college/universities campuses have a unique opportunity to influence the health of their students. In addition we believe that institutions also have the ability to affect the health of their staff.
