Professor Michelle Congo, of both St, Francis College and Long Island University, uses NEMS each year for an Urban Health class and a Nutrition class, combining some of the online training with fieldwork and a write-up of the experience.
Nutritional Environment Measures Survey
Honor’s Class of University of New Mexico’s BSN Nursing Program Choose NEMS
A group of nursing students in the Honor’s Class of University of New Mexico’s BSN nursing program chose to use NEMS to experience and participate in each step of the research process with their instructor, Dr. P.J. Wood. The group selected the concept of analyzing food environments surrounding high schools, wondering if having an open campus for lunch might expose students to a food environment which could either encourage or discourage healthy food choices. They used the NEMS tools to measure the food environments surrounding some Albuquerque open campus high schools.
