Jarrett Stein, a two-time Penn alumnus and a staff member at the Netter Center for Community Partnerships, has been selected as a TIAA Difference Maker 100 honoree for his efforts to improve nutrition for the young people of West Philadelphia.

As a senior in 2008, Stein took an academically based community service (ABCS) course, the “Politics of Food,” which engaged Penn’s neighbors to help solve a critical problem in the West Philadelphia community: inadequate nutrition. The course was offered through the Netter Center.
