To quote an old Sesame Street song, â€śEverybody eats.â€ť Consequently, just about every discipline within the health sciences has a stake in food and nutrition! It is for this very reason that the Hirsh Health Sciences Library has created the nutrition portal.
The nutrition portal will introduce you to key resources related to food and nutrition. These resources have been selected, not only for people who are specifically engaged in the study of nutrition, but also for those seeking nutrition-related information for application in their own field of study.
Looking for resources that provide a global perspective on issues related to food and nutrition? Check out the â€śGlobalâ€ť tab, which features resource created by the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) and USAID.Â Want to know which parts of the USA have limited access to healthy food?Â Take a look at the USDAâ€™s â€śFood Environment Atlas,â€ť which is featured on the â€śUnited Statesâ€ť tab.
The nutrition portal will also point you towards policy resources, article databases (including PubMed@Tufts and Web of Knowledge), and guides on research writing and using the Hirsh Health Sciences Library.
Have you explored the nutrition portal? Is something missing? Let us know what you think by giving us anÂ emailÂ or call!
