The World Health Organisation reports that there are over 400 million adults currently suffering from obesity and around 1. 6 billion who are overweight. In addition, obesity is classified as one of the top ten diseases – risk factors that increase the number of deaths. For this reason, they are called the plague of the 21st century.
The main causes of the morbidity are: poor nutrition, including overeating, lack of care for good food composition, inaccurate and hasty eating, and lifestyle: lack of exercise and excessive stress. So how should we eat to stay healthy and full of energy? How to help a person who already suffers from this type of disease? The answer can be given by a dietician – a specialist who has knowledge about proper nutrition, knows the principles of human body functioning and at the same time has therapeutic predispositions.
The expected learning outcomes are not only physical but also psychological. By studying dietetics, you will learn how the human body works and what processes take place in it. You will learn how to design a proper diet for both ill and healthy people, taking into account their genetic characteristics, food intolerances, allergies, lifestyle and private preferences. You will gain knowledge about designing and conducting technological processes used in food production. You will get to know the methods of evaluation of nutrition and diet of young people, adults, elderly people, pregnant women, people practicing different sports and living in different environmental conditions. You will also learn what communication with the patient (and their family) should look like, what to look out for and what to follow when talking to them.
In the course of three years of study you will acquire many new skills – among others, you will learn how to conduct a nutritional interview, give individual and group advice, operate and use special devices designed to identify selected food ingredients and prepare food. You will be able to plan and implement appropriate dietary management in order to prevent and treat diet-related diseases. You will also learn the principles of interaction between medications and food.
As a college with a practical profile, we place great emphasis on practical activities and work experience. We have a didactic background to ensure the best possible acquisition of the necessary skills, and a highly qualified staff, which includes the leading specialists from Tricity.
