About Public Health Nutrition at Sheffield Hallam University

Successive government white papers such as Choosing Health (Department of Health, 2004) have identified the need for an increase in professionals with nutritional and dietary expertise. This course is for people with an interest in nutrition who want to build a professional career helping the public understand and apply nutritional information. Public health nutrition looks at how nutritional advice in published research, provided by government initiatives or on food packaging, translates into easily understood messages the public can apply to everyday life. This course gives you the knowledge and skills to work in public health practice. You study * food * nutrition * health * diet, and how these impact on public health promotion and nutritional policy. You learn how to use nutritional and dietary knowledge to support the health of individuals and communities. You also develop the analytical skills and personal qualities expected of a science graduate. You learn to work with a wide range of people to help them alter their behaviour so they can manage their diets. These include * people with medical problems such as diabetes, coronary heart disease and obesity * children, elderly people or women during pregnancy You take part in seminars, workshops and projects in our modern facilities at City Campus. This course has a strong practical element and you learn to use a wide range of equipment. For example, in laboratory sessions you learn to measure body fat using various methods, and to measure cholesterol from blood samples.
