Summer Programs

College Now @ LaGuardia Community College

Introductory Nutrition: SCD200

Introductory Nutrition integrates nutrition science with the physical and life sciences: chemistry, biology, anatomy, and physiology. You will learn about digestion, absorption and the metabolism of nutrients; the physical and chemical properties of nutrients; their metabolic functions; and food sources. You will also investigate the socioeconomic and behavioral factors that influence food selection and accessibility. In this program, two clinical dietitians will introduce you to the dietetics profession and engage you in a discussion of healthy lifestyles. You will complete a film project, and a Nutrient Analysis Project, keeping a food journal and analyzing your findings in a written, personal dietary history. You will also participate in a role-play project and a study of the social-cultural influences on food choices.
