USDA Officials Hopeful on HNRCA Funding

A top U.S. Department of Agriculture official praised the long history of nutrition science at Tufts and said she remains hopeful that proposed federal budget cuts will not impede the work at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA).

“We have found our investment here at Tufts to be so beneficial to the American consumer over the years,” said Chavonda Jacobs-Young, administrator of the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), the USDA’s principal research agency. “The work that’s done here is critical.”
