Malnutrition is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, and a major impediment to population health and economic development. This course will introduce students to nutritional problems in the global community, through evaluation of the scientific literature and exploration of epidemiological, biological, demographic, and social factors that affect nutritional status. Students will be encouraged to think critically about the major challenges to improve nutrition with applications to infectious diseases, maternal and child health, and non-communicable diseases. Students will also have an opportunity to develop interventions to target a nutritional problem in the context of a specific country.
