Description: Recent advances in the study of nutrition and infectious disease require that nutritionists be skilled in the behavioral sciences and social marketing in order to impact the preventable etiologies of obesity and chronic diseases. Add to that a new understanding of the environmental effects on health that further require nutritionists to assume new roles in the generation of public policy.This important new book covers all aspects of developing and delivering nutrition related services in the community. Grounded in the science of nutrition, it offers simple, practical guidance and tools for nutritionists--whether working in clinical or public health venues--to develop and implement effective public nutrition programs. Each chapter begins with reader objectives and ends with "Points to Ponder" and a listing of helpful websites.With chapter contributions from public health professionals across the country, Nutrition in Promoting the Public's Healthis an essential reference for all public health nutrition professionals.
