College News and Departmental Notes: Nutrition and Food Economics
by Departmental notes - 1922
Twelve nutrition classes with a total registration of about 175 children are being conducted at Public School No. 43 by students of the department of nutrition. The two nutrition workers maintained at the school by the New York County Chapter of the American Red Cross, Miss Katherine White and Miss Dorothy Simpson, are Teachers College graduates trained in nutrition and experienced in social case work. They assist Professor Rose in the supervision of the students' work, which consists not only in the conduct of classes but in home visiting, record keeping, and other activities incident to this kind of field work. Since this work was undertaken at Public School 43, more than 350 families have been under care. The teachers in the school speak warmly of the improvement in many of the children and give the work their hearty support.
