Tulane PRC Helps Promote Nutrition in Underserved Communities

The Prevention Research Center (PRC) at Tulane University is partnering with the newly created Whole Cities Foundation, developed with $1 million in seed money from Whole Foods Market, to promote nutrition and health education in underserved communities, starting in New Orleans. The PRC and other partners of the newly built ReFresh site on New Orleans’ Broad Street will work with the foundation to develop and evaluate a community health outreach program. “By collaborating with, supporting, and learning from our dedicated community partners, Whole Cities Foundation hopes to develop models for community health outreach that we can share with other cities,” said foundation executive director Ms. Meredith Smith.
