Extension & Outreach


The University of Wisconsin-Extension links the research of the University with families in every county in Wisconsin. Faculty and staff members in the UW-Madison Department of Nutritional Sciences work in cooperation with UW-Extension Family Living programs to provide research-based education that promotes family strengths and helps communities become positive environments for family life. Within UW-Extension Family Living Programs, the Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP) provides community-based nutrition education for families with low incomes.

Extension faculty and staff based in the Department of Nutritional Sciences are as follows:

Teresa Curtis, Nutrition Education Program Specialist

Beth Olson, Extension Nutrition Specialist
