Heard on Campus: 'Rock star nutritionist' Jill Jayne at the Forum

November 19, 2010

"I use the same model that helps sell music to sell health to kids. We focus on the cross-curricular. When I'm teaching about drinking eight glasses of water a day, there's also eight notes in a musical scale. The key to my success is bringing subjects together in a rock and roll show."

-- Jill Jayne, a 2004 Penn State graduate who educates children about nutrition through her rock and roll nutrition show, "Jump with Jill," speaking Friday (Nov. 19) at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. Jayne, a Schreyer Honors Scholar while at Penn State, holds a master's degree in nutrition education from Columbia University and has toured the country with her rock band Sunset West. She used the two passions to create Note to Health, which combines nutrition education with multimedia performances and has brought her show to more than 100,000 students nationwide.
