NUFD 590: Nutrition Policy
This course introduces students to theories, models, and analytic frameworks for understanding the dynamics of policy making and evaluation processes that address nutrition policy problems. Students develop a project for evaluating policy decision-making, outcomes and impacts. Case studies are used as a teaching tool to underscore policy lessons, facilitate small group discussion, and introduce students to several policy initiatives (i.e., School Meal Programs, Food stamps, Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children). 3 hours lecture.
