Fit-a-Thon 2020: Nutrition during COVID-19

​​​Dietetic interns and nutrition students at the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, under the supervision of Dr. Jomaa and in collaboration with the AUBMC Health and Wellness Center, held the annual Fit-a-Thon during the week of October 19, 2020. This year's Fit-a-Thon carried the theme “Nutrition during COVID-19: Your Shield for a Better Health." The event focused on ways to boost immunity by adopting healthy eating and lifestyle habits, practicing mindful eating, cooking nutritious and balanced meals on a budget, and staying active during the pandemic. The interns and students prepared interactive activities, including short videos, live interactive sessions, social media stories, polls and fun challenges shared on various social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter) of AUB FAFS and AUBMC Health and Wellness center. Once again, this year's Fit-a-Thon successfully promoted the overall health and wellbeing of students, faculty, staff, and the AUB community at large, while also attracting viewers and participants from the general public.​
