National Science Foundation spotlights Falk REU program that trains veterans, non-veterans to conduct trauma-related research

The Trauma Research Education for Undergraduates (REU) program, launched three years ago by Falk Family Endowed Professor of Public Health, Brooks Gump and SUNY Oswego psychology professor Karen Wolford, trains veterans and non-veterans to conduct trauma-related research. A joint venture of Syracuse University, the State University of New York (SUNY) at Oswego and SUNY Upstate Medical University, the Trauma REU is offered to 10 students each year. It starts with an intense, immersive summer program--four weeks of trauma coursework while crafting a research project--and continues through the year as students conduct research under faculty supervision. Students are a mix of veterans and non-veterans. This highly interdisciplinary program includes faculty who are geneticists, psychologists and social workers and has contributed to research on stress reduction tools used by trauma patients

Falk professor Jennifer Wilkins updates first U.S. regional food guide to help consumers understand benefits, how-to’s of eating locally

Thanks to farmers’ markets, farm-to-school programs, and community-supported agriculture, locally grown foods are more readily available—and more in demand. People want to know where their food comes from. How is it grown? What steps are involved in its processing? Evidence suggests that plant-based, regionally sourced diets, largely composed of minimally processed foods, can significantly reduce some of the negative environmental impacts of our food choices. Eating locally produced foods also strengthens the market for local farmers.
