Reagan Collins assists Center member Tom Alderman with food preparation.

University of Oklahoma students Reagan Collins and Hartley Bowman were awarded an Albert Schweitzer Fellowship to develop a curriculum and conduct classes for people with disabilities to educate them on nutrition along with various adaptive ways they can prepare and incorporate healthy foods into their daily lives.

“Veggies for Life” is available to members at the Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges, 815 S. Utica Ave. 

“With our program it’s been really awesome to see how the adaptive tools we’ve been able to provide for them — to try out and see what options are out there — how it’s been able to really benefit their lives,” says Collins, who is studying occupational therapy.

She and Bowman, who is studying physical therapy, also encourage class participants and answer questions on healthy cooking.
