Instructor comments:

Welcome to FN 211 Personal & Social Frameworks for Nutrition & Healthy Aging! This course is the result of collaboration between multiple PCC faculty to create an OER (Open Education Resource) course that received funding from Open Oregon Educational Resources. You will be asked to provide feedback on the course materials twice during the term. Your input is critical!
Please note that I run the course on a slightly unique schedule. For the first three days of the course , it begins with a Mini-Week. You must enter the course, read syllabus and related materials and complete a course intro quiz by end of day Wednesday in order to remain in the course. Starting the next day (Thursday), the course operates on a Thursday through Wednesday week, with most assignments due by end of day on Wednesdays.

I am really looking forward to learning with you this term!
