Sports Nutritionist Sarah Wick to Speak April 8
Sports nutritionist, Sarah Wick will speak on April 8 at 7 p.m. in Room 001 Life Sciences Building. She will speak to the audience about sports nutrition and how it affects performance. According to Wick, “This is such a growing and exciting field!”
Sponsored by Falk College’s Nutrition Education and Promotion Association (NEPA), a student-run organization that brings together Syracuse University students interested in nutrition and encourages them to share that interest with the surrounding campus and community, the event is free and open to the public. It will be of particular interest to those in the nutrition and athletics fields of study and work, as well as student-athletes.
As director of clinical sport nutrition for The Ohio State University’s 37 athletic teams, including the 2015 national champions in men’s football, Wick has been credited with leading a quiet revolution. Since Wick was hired, the results from players’ improved diets are dramatic. She stresses the importance of a balanced diet heavy on fruits and vegetables and provides players with individualized guidance, reviewing body composition and matching it with the physical requirements of each player’s position.
