Nutrition Assessment

This course is specifically for dietetics students. This course examines nutrition assessment as part of the nutrition care process. Students learn through didactic and hands on methods how to conduct a nutrition assessment of the apparently healthy and sick individuals.

Interested in volunteering?

To help aspiring dietetics students learn and practice nutrition assessments we are always looking for healthy, adult volunteers to visit the lab.
