Skin conditions, while seldom life threatening, can be some of the most distressing afflictions that we can suffer from.
The skin is on display and skin flare ups like acne and psoriasis can be incredibly distressing and severely affect quality of life. After exploring the anatomy and physiology of the skin, this module explores the common three skin conditions where diet and nutrition can have an impact – Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis. We explore how nutrition interacts with disease process and how it can be manipulated as a therapeutic tool for managing these conditions.
Assessment is a combination of an online exam, case study evaluation, and recipe/meal plan design project.
