Estudiante de Dietética (E.D. Program)

Welcome to the Estudiante de Dietética Program

The Estudiante de Dietética Program exists to produce culturally competent dietitians and nutritionists to work efficiently and effectively with the Hispanic/Latino population in an effort to decrease health disparities.   Upon completion, the participating student will not only be able to communicate in Spanish, but also understands how culture, socioeconomic, literacy and access to accurate nutrition information can impact food purchases, intake behaviors, and nutritional status.  Lastly, the participating student receives hands-on opportunities to practice the newly acquired skills and knowledge in the community.
