Tour Falk College’s Nutrition ACE Center

The Nutrition Assessment, Consultation and Education (ACE) Center is a hands-on learning laboratory that prepares students with traditional and emerging professional competencies critical to effective nutrition practice, thanks to a generous and visionary gift from Falk College alumna, Rhoda Dearman Morrisroe ‘69.

In the ACE Center, students will practice nutrition-focused physical examinations on a new patient simulator. The new facilities will allow for unlimited opportunities for direct practice with indirect calorimetry to measure how many calories someone is utilizing, instead of estimations that use imperfect mathematical equations. Additional enhancements to student learning include class experiences measuring body composition with the BOD POD testing system used extensively in university and medical facilities, the military and health and wellness settings to track body composition.
