CUNY Campaign For Healthy Food (CUNY CHeF)

In May 2011, HCI initiated the CUNY Campaign for Healthy Food (CUNY CHeF), a program designed to improve healthy food choices in CUNY cafeterias, vending machines and meetings; educate CUNY about diet-related health conditions; reduce consumption of soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages and increase opportunities for physical activity on CUNY campuses. Funding is provided by the NYCDOHMH Bureau of Tobacco Control and the Communities Putting Prevention to Work Grant.

CUNY Campaign Against Diabetes

CUNY Campaign Against Diabetes (CAD) was designed to reduce the number of CUNY students, faculty, staff, and their family members with uncontrolled diabetes and prevent the onset of diabetes and obesity among members of the CUNY community and their families.
