Armed with fresh vegetables and grains, chef Marti Wolfson ’02 showed students how to make healthy meals from scratch. She was back on campus as a guest in “Principles of Nutrition,” taught by her former professor Paul Arciero in health and exercise sciences. The class was held in the test kitchen of Murray-Aikins Dining Hall.

An exercise science and dance double-major, Wolfson earned a master's degree in human nutrition and functional medicine from the University of Western States in Oregon. Goals for the Skidmore workshop, she says, were to help show students “how to enhance their own health and how to work with their clients when they go out into the health-care field.”
