Most reliable nutrition information can be found online, but it can be nearly impossible to differentiate from the unreliable blogs and websites that claim their information is correct. Because of this, it can be difficult for students to determine which information is true and which advice they will follow. During this time of growth and learning, it is essential that students have access to accurate information that will help them to be healthier individuals for years to come. The goal of this project was to provide students with an easily accessible and reliable resource for nutrition information that was presented in a simple and relatable way. The following videos and attached materials were created in response to ASU student needs and will be available for students on the ASU wellness website.

Comparison of Nutrition Resources Available to Non-Athlete Students at Pac-12 Schools

University students currently lack sufficient knowledge and resources needed to support healthy eating patterns and nutrition. Comparison of the number of registered dietitians that are available to all students, along with the number of wellness events that are held at each university within the Pacific-12 conference will help determine which schools are best able to support their students' needs. Data was collected using a Google forms survey sent via email to wellness directors of each of the universities in the Pac-12 conference. Eight out of the twelve schools in the conference responded to the survey. The average number of dietitians available to all students (regardless of athlete status) was found to be 1.43 dietitians. Of the schools that responded, the University of Colorado, Boulder, has the most resources dedicated to student nutrition wellness with three dietitians available for all undergraduate students, free dietitian services, and approximately 150 wellness events each year. The success of available nutrition wellness resources was inconclusive as schools did not provide the information regarding student utilization and attendance. Future university promoted nutrition wellness programs should increase the number of affordable dietitians and total wellness events, as well as promote student health services through social media platforms to improve student nutrition knowledge and usage of resources.

Body Image, Eating Behaviors, and Wellness

Description

Introduction: A mini-documentary consisting of 4 student interviews and 1 professional interview was created for the purpose of providing examples of how body image and eating behaviors affect overall wellness

Introduction: A mini-documentary consisting of 4 student interviews and 1 professional interview was created for the purpose of providing examples of how body image and eating behaviors affect overall wellness and starting more conversation of this topic. Literature Review: A review of some of the current literature involving body image and wellness interventions suggests that body image is a significant factor of health and wellbeing. Wellness interventions, mostly "non-diet" approaches, that omit weight loss as a primary goal could be a suitable solution for some people wanting to make sustainable healthy lifestyle changes. The social media site, YouTube, was chosen to share the documentary based on the ability of social media to reach more people, engage them, and spread messages and information quickly. Methods: Participants of the video were volunteers responding to an ad posted on the Barrett, the Honors College daily newsletter. Michelle May, M.D. was interviewed to provide a professional perspective on the subject. Questions asked of the student participants were meant to provide examples of how each of their relationships with their bodies and food affected their ideas of health and vice versa. Final Video: The final video, titled "Food & You" can be found on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ShmAzlx2GhM Discussion and Conclusion: Overall, weight and body size still seem to play a role in the ideas the students interviewed have of health. As more research into improving body image is done, knowing how to add this to personal and health professional practice should be encouraged. Moving away from the weight-focused idea of health could improve body image and overall wellness.

The objective of the following research is to analyze the credibility of Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility feeding model and investigate its effectiveness when executed properly. Implementing this feeding model is proven effective in creating peaceful mealtimes, increasing healthy food relationships between children and food, and raising competent eaters. Being a competent eater helps to bypass larger lifelong struggles that threaten children’s health and safety – struggles like obesity, eating disorders, and chronic weight-related health conditions, making this research paramount in helping the children of the world fight the obesity epidemic that has been threatening their generation for more than a decade. It is an unfortunate fact that Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility lack specifics research trials on its effectiveness. The research below is of significant interest because it highlights the effectiveness of this feeding model while addressing its credibility, achievability, and limitations in conjunction with stressing the need for more research trials to be conducted.

Medical Storytelling: The Power of a Patient's Testimony

Usually a medical website has a description, or overview, of the condition. Then there are different sections informing the viewer about the signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. There are some resource links for families to explore, but there it provides more information rather than narration. What is lacking is a patient account or perspective on the given topic. This project suggests an added resource for parents and patients with its storytelling element that is irreplaceable. An example is also available using my own story growing up with hemifacial microsomia.

Banking on a Diet: A Documentary

Banking on a Diet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jamp5HYDDqg My documentary is about people with diet-related diseases and restrictions who receive food from a food bank. There has historically been very little research on this clientele, but that is changing. In 2014, the hunger research organization Feeding America asked Americans seeking food assistance if they had a diet-related disease. According to Feeding America's Hunger in America report, the survey found that 58 percent of national households have a member with high blood pressure. In Arizona, that's 54 percent. The survey also found that 33 percent of national households have a member with diabetes. In Arizona, that's 42 percent. Dietary restrictions such as food allergies or religious guidelines, on the other hand, are still not reported. I interviewed several food bank clients who, aside from having a diet-related disease, can't eat certain foods because of an allergy, adverse reaction with their medications, or religious guidelines. No matter the individual case, food banks are beginning to realize there's a growing population of clients who can't get the food they need. Food banks nationally, and in Arizona, are taking steps to accommodate the clients they serve who have diet-related diseases and/or dietary restrictions. My documentary focuses on those food bank clients, as well as what the food banks are doing to accommodate them. The biggest issue is that food banks can only work with the food they receive, or use the money that's donated to them to purchase food. The food banks do their best with what they're given and the clients do the same. According to Association of Arizona Food Banks, two of the food bank leaders in diet-conscious services are Desert Mission, a member of AAFB and the HonorHealth system, and Cultural Cup, an independent food bank separate from AAFB. I focused on these two food banks and their clients for my documentary.

An Analysis of the Modern Day Relationship Between College Women, Social Media, and Diet Culture

Description

Social media is rapidly changing the way we view the world and live our lives, serving as an online space for connection, creative expression, and inspiration. However, the ever-evolving world

Social media is rapidly changing the way we view the world and live our lives, serving as an online space for connection, creative expression, and inspiration. However, the ever-evolving world of photo editing apps combined with popular health and fitness content on social media sites can be a dangerous combination for young women’s self esteem and body image. This thesis defense explores the ways in which young women are influenced by content that they interact with online. The goal of this project was to provide a general analysis of how fitness and diet-promoting culture on Instagram is affecting young women’s behaviors and perceptions of themselves with an emphasis on the local ASU community. A literature review was conducted as well as an informal survey in order to collect data on the topic and formulate suggestions for alleviating these issues.
