NDM I - Introduction to Nutrition

The choices we make about food and nutrition shape our health and wellness throughout our lives. This course dives into the factors influencing our dietary choices, from cultural influences to personal tastes. We’ll explore macronutrients, micronutrients, governmental dietary guidelines, and practical assessment tools to design nutrition plans that improve well-being and weight management. This online class has optional live sessions.

NDM II - Food Science

Food Science lives at the intersection of culture, health, and innovation. By understanding the composition of foods, we can determine the best methods for their preparation, and how different cooking and preservation techniques affect food quality, safety, and nutritional value. Learn about food categories, such as the role of lactose and casein in dairy, and the science behind various preparation methods. This online class has optional live sessions.

NDM III - Food Economics

Food Economics isn't just about numbers—it's about people. Inequalities in our global food system often mirror the broader disparities in society. By understanding these systems, we can bring about transformative change. This course tackles the essentials: preventing foodborne illnesses, mastering procurement, and ensuring production quality. You'll learn the real-world calculations behind food costs and discover how food systems can save lives. This online class has optional live sessions.

NDM IV - Lifecycle Nutrition I

From preconception to adolescence, nutrition shapes our health trajectories. This course explores how early choices, like breastfeeding or formula feeding, impact a child's development milestones and potential food allergies. As children grow, we'll examine how dietary needs and relationships with food evolve, especially during adolescence. Learn about the pivotal role of nutrition during early life and how it can mold health and self-perception. This online class has optional live sessions.

NDM V - Lifecycle Nutrition II

In adulthood, nutritional habits solidify. We'll explore how early adulthood sets foundational food choices, and middle adulthood introduces complexities with work, family, and the onset of chronic diseases. Lastly, we'll explore the challenges faced in geriatric nutrition, including the impacts of polypharmacy. Throughout, a recurring theme will be weight management, emphasizing its role in promoting sustained health and activity. This online class has optional live sessions.

NDM VI - Medical Nutrition Therapy

Through this course, students will gain insights into how medical and social histories play a crucial role in accurate nutrition diagnoses. The course also highlights various counseling techniques and introduces therapeutic diets tailored to address specific health challenges. Emphasizing the importance of monitoring and evaluating outcomes, this course prepares students for effective and informed interventions. This online class has optional live sessions.
