Lifestyle choices in areas like dietary choices and exercise greatly impact overall health and well-being. NIFA’s research and educational initiatives target the harmful impacts of unhealthy lifestyles and poor dietary choices. We fund research and disseminate findings so that Americans are better equipped to make informed choices. Our efforts — directed to Americans throughout their lifespans — focus on promoting health, preventing and managing disease and disability, and decreasing health disparities among minority populations.
