Food Policy for Developing Countries – Free Program

This online program aims to strengthen university training in policy analysis for the food systems, with emphasis on developing countries, using a social entrepreneurship approach. The approach attempts to simulate real policy-making situations within an analytical and conceptual learning environment, employing a hands-on, participatory environment in which the students are taught to be social entrepreneurs.

DNS Global Health Program

The Division of Nutritional Sciences Global Health Program offers students from any field of study the opportunity to explore and apply global health knowledge through experiential learning. We define global health as research, service, and training that address health problems that transcend national boundaries and disproportionately affect the resource-poor. Our mission is to engage new researchers and practitioners in the field of global health and to establish new and unique relationships that foster a multidisciplinary approach to understanding and solving global health problems.


Cornell University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer.
