Program Description:

Nutrition affects people at all ages and stages of life. The health of an individual, group or population is related to eating behaviors and food intake. Nutrition professionals must understand the science of nutrition, from the biochemistry of cellular nutrition to the application of that science to individuals, groups, and populations. The nutritional needs of growth and development, pregnancy, a specific disease state, or advancing age challenge professionals to use their knowledge to assess individuals or communities and provide information and effective interventions or services.
