About Foods and Nutrition
Fats Aren’t The Whole Story
It's tough to lose weight and keep it off. What are our options to help develop eating patterns that maintain healthy weight and prevent obesity from the start? Join us for a presentation from OHSU's Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness for a discussion of this important topic.
Foods and Nutrition includes the study of human metabolism, foods and other forms of nutrient delivery that support human health, factors that can affect nutrient availability, food systems and human health behaviors. Critical inquiries are made into how food and nutrition are marketed and how nutrition recommendations are developed.
At PCC, Foods and Nutrition offerings include a 100-level course: Personal Nutrition, which emphasizes basic nutrition principles and personal health behaviors; and a 200-level course: Nutrition, which is tailored to students pursuing careers in the life sciences and allied health.
Foods and Nutrition courses are lower division collegiate courses that transfer to a four-year college or university. Courses may transfer as:
- elective credits
- program requirement credits
- and/or graduation requirements for the receiving institution
