Concurrent Field Experiences

The first types of Public Health Nutrition field experiences are completed concurrently in conjunction with NUTR 505 and 506. Students work with Public Health Nutritionists at the Knox County Health Department, which is a comprehensive metropolitan health department. In NUTR 505 and 506  students visit a variety of agencies and organizations and observe how public health nutrition is practiced. They get a “taste” of the opportunities available to them in the real world. Students also conduct a community nutrition assessment, as well as, plan, implement, and evaluate programs that benefit the local community under the supervision of the Knox County Health Department Public Health Nutritionists.
