How We Work


------- + -------

At the Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition, we have a Midwest based, fully-staffed office of researchers collaborating with partners across the U.S. who implement or manage programs to improve health. Our partners work with integrity and compassion to bring about positive change in policies and environments that can facilitate healthier individuals.


We listen to our partners’ priorities, challenges and concerns to provide evidence of their hard work with the smartest research and evaluation tools we can collect or create. Not only do we help prove — or improve — their programs’ effectiveness, but we also provide high-quality, rigorous data to back it up.

We are the only independent non-profit nutrition research center in the U.S. with this type of adaptability and freedom to serve our partners well.
