Spence Ensures Service-Learning

Marsha Spence has worked to ensure that graduate and undergraduate students have service learning opportunities through coursework and research. This year, students provided nutrition education at Let’s Move! Knoxville; Eat, Play, Live Knoxville and the Cardiac Club Carnival. Through course-related service learning projects, students also provided nutrition education to Girl Scouts, children enrolled in the Nutrition Education and Activity Training afterschool program, and clients at the Knoxville Area Rescue Mission. Spence also collaborates with Knox County Schools on the Cardiac Club Program, an afterschool nutrition and physical activity program, which expanded to seven schools this year.
