The Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and the Tufts University School of Medicine jointly seek to hire at least two new faculty members with passion, expertise, and scholarship in the area of Food is Medicine (FIM).
Tufts University is making a major new investment to launch a new, cross-university Food is Medicine Institute. Directed by Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian and bringing together research, training, patient services, policy development, and community engagement, this first-of-its-kind Institute will serve as a catalyst to drive change, improve health, reduce health disparities, and create a more equitable and resilient healthcare system that recognizes the power of nourishing food. Its efforts will be centered in health equity to work collaboratively with and improve the lives of traditionally marginalized, vulnerable populations. The Institute will also host and build a national network of partnerships with stakeholders within and beyond healthcare to ensure that efforts advance well-being and policy broadly and reach the people who need them most.
