Teaching is my passion.

NTR 338 W Issues in Nutrition & Health (Scientific Writing for Nutrition Majors) - Students write a review of recent literature on a nutrition-related topic of their choice. They present a paper and their review, using Power Point, and learn to give constructive criticism.

NTR 338H Issues in Nutrition & Health (Scientific Writing for Nutrition Majors) Honors - Students are usually working with a faculty member and write a review of recent literature, like the 338W students; however, they present 3 papers and their reviews.

NTR 331 International Nutrition: Social & Environmental Policies (currently offered only in the Spring) This course explores everything from privatization of water, preserving the Amazon Rainforest, the radioactive waste dump in W. Texas, educating young women in Pakistan, immigration, building families from AIDS orphans and widows in Ethiopia, to sustainable agriculture here and abroad, and free trade agreements. The class is interactive, to a great extent, and culminates in a mock debate over issues covered in the class.

NTR 352 Field Experience in Nutrition: students volunteer at a food related organization and write a commentary on some aspect of their experience.

Field Experience in Nutrition NTR 352 or 152

I do not have a lab, per se, but offer this course as an opportunity to explore the application of nutrition knowledge and practice in the community.
