Stephanie Pintas is a rising sophomore in the Emory College of Arts and Sciences. She is a Human Health major and plans to minor in Nutrition Science. Nutrition is really central to her life because she believes that eating whole foods is a powerful preventive tool for many of the diseases in the United States and around the world. Next year Ms. Pintas will be a Healthy Eating Partner at the Dobbs University Center. Beyond Emory, Ms. Pintas desires to help people with their health and wellbeing because absence of wellness, dis-ease, is severely impacting individuals' health and the prosperity of the United States as a whole. She will achieve this by opening up a clinic that caters to each individual. It will have medical doctors that collaborate with East Asian medicine practitioners. Further, it will incorporate meditation, yoga, and cooking classes as well as courses on compassion. The ultimate goal is to create a center for wellness that focuses on prevention as much as possible and helps individuals implement healthier choices into their lives for happier living. Nutrition is just one aspect of wellness, but one that is essential to Stephanie as you will see in her following infographic work.
