RIT announces plans for a new school, degree programs devoted to health and nutrition
Date:3/7/2014

Rochester Institute of Technology today announced plans for a new school of health and nutrition, charged with educating students on the role of nutrition, exercise and behavior modification in promoting healthy lifestyles. The Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition, part of RIT's College of Health Sciences and Technology, will be launched with a $6 million gift from The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation.

"We are greatly appreciative for The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation's gift, and their support for RIT's vision for this school," said RIT President Bill Destler. "Through its educational and research programs, the Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition will have tremendous potential for changing the current health climate throughout the entire country."

"The Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition will focus and extend the college's strengths and potential," said Dr. Daniel Ornt, RIT dean of the College of Health Sciences and Technology and vice president of the Institute of Health Sciences and Technology. "The research findings our students and faculty produce stand to a have real impact in addressing a national health issue, while giving our students a professional edge."

The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation, headquartered in Rochester, has a history of supporting community programs in the areas of education, health and wellness, and workforce development.

"RIT has a track record of thought leadership in our community, along with a proven ability to apply scientific concepts in a practical way," said Danny Wegman, The Foundation's president and chairman of the board. "We are confident
