Fall enrollment has begun. At the same time, education of health care providers and those in health related fields excludes or only superficially covers nutrition. Those on the front lines of health care know nutrition is key to the prevention of and the first line therapy for chronic disease, such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.
This is the first MSHS program to offer a nutrition focus, according to a statement released by the university earlier this week. The new concentration , which is offered as part of a credit online program, will give students a foundation in integrative medicine, and extensive nutrition education. Courses include nutrition assessment, diagnosis, and intervention; nutritional metabolism and environmental exposures; self-care methods in integrative medicine; food technology and health; and nutritional immunology. Physicians may opt to complete the fellowship program for further clinical, business, research, and leadership skills. However, education of healthcare providers and those in health-related fields excludes or only superficially covers nutrition, the university said. The integrative medicine community has long-known nutrition is key to the prevention of and the first line therapy for chronic disease, such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. However, surveys routinely report that these healthcare providers feel unprepared to counsel their patients on nutrition. The MSHS in Integrative Medicine with a concentration in nutrition, the university says, will address these knowledge gaps and help those in health professions master nutrition and nutrition counseling.
