Micronutrient Information Center (MIC)
The Linus Pauling Institute's Micronutrient Information Center is a source for scientifically accurate information regarding the roles of vitamins, minerals, other nutrients, dietary factors, including phytochemicals (plant chemicals that may affect health), and some food and beverages in preventing disease and promoting health. All of the nutrients and dietary factors included in the Micronutrient Information Center may be obtained from the diet, but many are also available as dietary supplements.
Healthy Youth Program (HYP)
The Healthy Youth Program is a wellness and healthy lifestyle program for children (preschool through grade 12) and their families. Most of our programs are based on vegetable gardens, linking a healthy and active lifestyle with a healthy and sustainable environment and providing fresh produce for families in need. We engage children and families through participatory education, hands-on activities, and interactive dialogue. All of our programs are youth and family centered, tailored to their unique needs, and build on the strengths of the participating youth and families for long-term success.
Diet and Optimum Health Conference
Our Diet and Optimum Health Conferenceemphasizes dietary and lifestyle approaches to improving human health and preventing or treating disease, including dietary supplements, micronutrients, and antioxidants. The target audience includes scientists and health professionals in biochemistry, nutrition, preventive medicine, public health, endocrinology, cardiology, oncology, and gerontology. We anticipate a strong scientific look at the cutting edge of nutrition research. The Conference is held every other year.
The Institute publishes a free, semi-annual Research Newsletter that features articles by LPI scientists on their current research projects and comments on other work being done in areas relevant to the Institute's mission.
During the academic year, the Institute brings seminar speakers to the Oregon State University campus who are distinguished scientists working in areas related to the mission of the Institute.
The Linus Pauling Institute faculty and staff present information about vitamins, minerals, and health online in an interactive forum. This webinar series is hosted live at Oregon State University, but the videos and slides from each presentation will be made available after each event.
