Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition & Preventive Health

Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition & Preventive Health Academic center for whole food-based research and public health nutrition.

Created through a generous gift from two of the world's most prominent advocates for whole grains and healthy eating, Bob and Charlee Moore, the Moore Family Center helps individuals and communities live healthier through good nutrition. The center builds upon synergies among research, education and outreach to bridge the science of whole foods and nutrition to its practical application in the community. It uses this interconnected model, including experimental learning, to train the next generation of nutrition educators.

Mission: The Moore Family Center is dedicated to helping individuals and communities live healthier through healthy foods and good nutrition. The Moore Family Center’s goal is to take a multidisciplinary approach to understand the role of all foods, including whole grains, in health promotion and disease prevention. The center builds upon synergies among research, education and outreach/practice to bridge the science of whole foods and nutrition to its practical application in the community.
