Now in her eighth year on the faculty of the University of Kentucky, Alison Gustafson is very happy to be a Wildcat. She is associate professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of Dietetics and Human Nutrition within UK’s College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

Along with her classroom teaching, Gustafson does extensive research and outreach focused on helping people make healthier food choices.

On this week’s episode of “Behind the Blue,” UK Public Relations and Strategic Communications’ Carl Nathe talks with Gustafson about her work to help Kentuckians make real strides in the battle against chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Through the efforts of Gustafson and her colleagues, hopeful signs are appearing on the horizon. To listen, click here.
