Public Health Nutrition Field Experiences

The Public Health Nutrition concurrent and block field experiences are essential to understanding how nutrition programs and services are integrated in community health care delivery systems. Students develop an understanding of and appreciation for the realities of public health nutrition practice and how nutrition-related community priorities and needs are addressed by the public health system. Students integrate theory with practice by interacting with the “real world.” They gain confidence in themselves as professionals, develop professional contacts, and clarify career objectives.

There are two types of experiences completed in the Public Health Nutrition program, Concurrent Field Experiences and Block Field Experiences.
