Certificate in Food, Nutrition, and Health

(16 contact hours) 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.

Certificate in Nutrition, Chronic Disease, and Health Promotion

(12 contact hours) Nutrition is a major determinant of health as well as a factor in many common chronic diseases. In this certificate program, you'll gain an understanding of the role food and water play in health, and see how making appropriate changes in one's diet can have powerful effects on health throughout life.

You'll examine how the burden of chronic diseases is rapidly increasing worldwide as traditional, largely plant-based diets are being replaced by high-fat, energy-dense diets with a substantial content of animal-based foods. This certificate addresses these issues and more and provides a solid foundation of for both health care professionals and those wishing to enter the fields of nutrition, health promotion, and lifestyle and wellness coaching.
