The central commitment of the OHSU Bob and Charlee Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness is to reduce the prevalence of chronic diseases across the lifespan in current and future generations by promoting healthy, nutrient-rich diets based on whole-foods in early life – before conception, during pregnancy and lactation, and in infancy and early childhood.
The scientific cornerstone of the Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness is a discipline in which OHSU is already internationally recognized: the developmental origins of health and disease, which includes the vital relationships between maternal prenatal diet, fetal health and adult onset disease.
