The purpose of a practicum is to give students practical field experience in an off-campus organization, agency, or community setting. It is designed primarily to focus on the delivery of nutrition-related services to support health promotion, education, and other nutritional services to a group. Students apply all of their learning to become a healing presence in the community. In this first half of practicum, students identify an appropriate site, assess the needs of the target population, and develop nutrition education materials and lesson plans. Students will build their confidence and proficiency in order to practice nutrition and integrative health effectively and competently in the community.
