Researchers from Ohio State University and Appalachian State University recently published a pilot study that examined the feasibility of WISE in an intergenerational setting. The paper, entitled Extending the Together, We Inspire Smart Eating Curriculum to Intergenerational Nutrition Education: A Pilot Study offers a unique opportunity to have the results of DFPM-RED’s research-based work inform and inspire other researchers across the country.
We Inspire Smart Eating (WISE) was developed by a DFPM-RED team led by RED faculty members Taren Swindle, Ph.D. and RED Director Leanne Whiteside-Mansell Ph.D. Development from 2011 – 2016 was funded by a USDA grant and WISE was implemented statewide in Arkansas beginning in 2016. WISE was licensed for commercial distribution in other states in 2017.
WISE has been implemented in various states throughout the U.S. and the newly published study examines WISE implementation over three years in Ohio and Virginia.
