Falk Students, Syracuse Crunch Team Up on Performance Nutrition

Falk College nutrition student Melissa Mathews confers with a member of the Syracuse Crunch hockey team at Wegmans this past Monday. A group of undergraduate and graduate students interested in sport nutrition worked with nutrition instructor and registered dietitian Jane Burrell Uzcategui to deliver a cooking demo and Q and A session to the Crunch players on Nov. 4 and a tour at Wegmans on Nov. 11. Their goal was to teach them techniques for increasing their lean protein and fruit and vegetable intake to enhance muscle recovery. “The students did a fantastic job and have really enjoyed the projects,” notes Burrell Uzcategui.
