Spartan athletes march on their stomachs
Last year, Madeleine Meinhold ’21 MS helped supervise a large team of students – including UNCG’s Dietetic interns and undergrads from the Didactic Program in Dietetics’ professional engagement mentorship initiative – to provide a variety of nutrition support to UNCG’s sports teams.
The group established a new fueling station sponsored by Gatorade, hosted nutrition events, provided one-on-one support to student athletes, and more.
Recently graduated, Meinhold now is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and works as a sports nutritionist for UNCG Athletics.
