HSC 3510 - Community Nutrition

Credits: 4
Public health efforts in communities are implemented in many different types of settings, including community non- profit agencies, worksites, health centers, clinics, hospitals, schools, churches, supermarkets, recreational and sports centers, councils on aging/senior centers, and emergency feeding sites. This intensive course provides presentations, readings and activities related to the broad range of community-based nutrition research, programs and policies. This course is required to complete the Nutrition Concentration for the Health Science Major. Students will become familiar with community-based research and programs focused solely on nutrition as well as those in which nutrition is one component. Students will engage in skill-building and participatory activities, as well be introduced to case examples of creative and innovative approaches to community nutrition. Through periodic field visits and guest speakers, students will have an opportunity to dialogue with public health experts and practitioners who can influence community nutrition practice. Upon completion of this course, the students will have a toolbox of skills to utilize and apply in a wide range of practice settings.
