Program Overview

We all eat, and what we eat impacts our health and well-being.

Nutrition is life. We all know we need to eat to sustain life. But what science is increasingly realizing is just how connected our nutrition choices are to other aspects of our health.

Why is it important to study Nutrition?

Nutrition plays a key role in most of the ailments and conditions for which people seek help from an allied health professional. From chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes to growing public health concerns like obesity and mental health problems, nutrition is an important consideration when it comes to prevention, diagnosis and treatment. This program deals with the relationship of food with life activities and the development of nutrition programs, planning meals and therapeutic diets for the prevention of diseases to improve the health of community members as well as the best sources of food obtained by the human requirements from nutrients.
