About this Unit
This unit aims to develop an understanding of the inter relationship between nutrition and health in Australian and Global contexts. The aim is to provide the student with a sound foundation in nutritional anthropology, public health nutrition and health promotion in order that they can systematically analyse nutritional problems associated with world food issues; including those affecting minority and culturally and linguistically diverse groups within Australia; diseases of affluence and current health and nutrition issues in the community. An important objective of the unit is that students learn the principles of health promotion and how to apply effective nutrition promotion strategies in community and population settings in order to reduce the burdens of various nutritional and lifestyle related disorders and diseases like: obesity, some cancers, diabetes and cardiovascular disease and malnourishment.
