Also covered are examples of nutrition-related dysfunctions. Students work individually and in groups on a range of topics including dietary needs assessment, caloric expenditure, effect of diet on growth and development, and dietary surveys. This course is intended for students with an interest in health services. Credit for this course may be earned through departmental examination.
