The objective of this study was to obtain a health profile for the staff members of a specific FET College. The study consisted of 138 adults of which there were 77 women and 61 men.This profile has been attained by: obtaining anthropometric data (height, mass, waist circumference); nutrient intake and food consumption observations, (24hr recall questionnaires, mathematically and statistically calculating parameters and comparing the results with internationally established criteria. The pertinent data: a relatively large Body Mass Index and Waist Circumference in addition to the presence of hypertension, low fruit and vegetable consumption and a low nutrient adequacy ratio for the staff members, indicates the need for an improved diet with levels of nutrient intake closer to that recommended internationally.
