The aim of this subject is to provide students with the opportunity to further develop their understanding of the role of nutrition in the pathogenesis of chronic diseases that are common in developed countries (with particular emphasis on the Australian context). Students will be able to critique the links between current understandings of the role of nutrition in the development of chronic disease and the development and implementation of chronic disease prevention and health promotion programs. Special consideration will be given to how these programs work in rural, disadvantaged and Indigenous communities.
