Auburn U program on Mediterranean Diet
We are happy to welcome 14 Auburn University students for the fourth edition of the faculty-led program on the Mediterranean Diet in Italy. Over the past four years, we have worked together with the faculty lead of the program, Professor Michael Greene, Director of the Metabolic Phenotyping Laboratory and Assistant Professor of Nutrition at the College of Human Sciences of Auburn University, to design a short experiential and research-focused summer program where we examine the Mediterranean Diet through meetings with experts, lectures, visits and excursions in Rome and around Italy. This year, the program will include a week-long excursion in Sicily. Students in past years have had the opportunity to visit Cilento, Puglia, Basilicata, Calabria as well as the Emilia-Romagna in the North of Italy.
