WVU Medicine has long championed exercise and fitness initiatives through its Wellness Program and is extending that, with support from WVU Medicine leadership and recommendations from the recent Employee Engagement Survey, into the dietary world. It started with healthier menu items for patients in 2011 and has expanded into choices in the Ruby Memorial cafeteria and the vending machines nearby.

Even the french fries served at the cafeteria will become healthier, thanks to new infrared hot air convection ovens, which recently replaced oil fryers. The new ovens will dramatically reduce the fat content in traditionally fried food.

To learn more about the new ovens, watch the video below.
