This may be one of the most important modules. The country is in a healthcare crisis. Diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity are placing enormous demand upon our healthcare system, to the point where it is about to break. These issues really are down to the way in which our modern diet and lifestyle is causing havoc and severe metabolic dysfunction. The phenomena of metabolic syndrome is well documented.
This module focuses upon this widespread metabolic dysfunction and how diet can both be a major cause, and in many cases the most relevant and effective management tool.
Assessment is a combination of an online exam, case study evaluation, and recipe/meal plan design project.
