NUTR 568 - Survey of Chronic Diseases


3 Credits
This course serves as a platform to deliver a general overview of the most prevalent chronic diseases plaguing the U.S. today in order to establish a baseline level of knowledge prior to enrolling in specific disease-related courses.   The student will have the opportunity to examine the evidence available related to the epidemiologic, physiologic, biochemical and nutritional complexities of the major diet-related diseases in the United States from a broad perspective. Students will complete assignments based on course readings, will work in small groups to develop a Power Point-based seminar on a current topic related to one of the diseases and students will also write a short paper aimed at a lay audience that discusses a recent research article in one of the four disease areas. The final exam will be in the form of a reflection essay.  This course is required for students in the combined MS/DI program.
