Certificate in Food, Nutrition, and Health


with Cyndie Koopsen, Franklin County Adult Education

Gain insight into how food interacts with your body and how to make healthy changes for better nutrition. This course provides a holistic overview of current food and nutrition issues and their impact on physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health.

Food and nutrition have a profound impact on our health and well-being, yet many of us are not aware of what foods to eat, which diets are healthy, and where our food originates. We eat toxic, irradiated, or genetically altered foods and we eat more than we need. How can we change our eating habits and become more conscious of what we eat, why we eat it, how it is prepared, and what consequences our food choices have on our health as well as the health of our planet? This certificate provides an overview of the role of food and nutrition choices on our bodies, our immune systems, our overall well-being, and the health of all sentient beings on an increasingly populated planet.

The outcome of this certificate is for the learner to describe a holistic overview of current food and nutrition issues and their impact on physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and planetary health. (16 contact hours)

Expiration Date: 06/01/2022

Classes start on these dates: March 17, April 14 and /or May 12
