Global Food Initiative
Katelynd E. Todd
GFI Fellow - Class of 2018
Master's student, epidemiology and biostatistics
Katelynd will work closely with the UC Berkeley Nutrition Policy Advisory Committee members and University Health Services to support the implementation, communication, and evaluation plans for the new Food and Beverage Choices policy. This policy establishes nutrition standards to ensure healthy food and beverage choices are available in on campus retail foodservice and markets, vending machines, athletic concessions, and University-sponsored meetings and events. The overarching goals are to improve accessibility of whole and fresh foods, provide healthier alternatives to sugar-sweetened beverages, and engage positive communications promoting healthier choices.
