MS degree in Nutrition & Dietetics | Behind the Scenes with Roschelle Heuberger, Ph.D., RD



I'm passionate about nutrition and dietetics primarily because everyone eats and everyone is interested in food or has some issue with food and you can always talk to somebody about it we have a number of crises occurring in this country as well as globally in terms of obesity and eating disorders and diabetes and there will be more jobs available for persons who are trained in nutrition specifically clinical nutrition and our program is very much geared towards geriatrics and some of the problems being faced by the older adult and that demographic it has been steadily increasing over the last 20 years and we'll continue to do so and we will require more people in the field of geriatrics with extensive knowledge of nutrition and clinical issues for that population unfortunately there is not enough infrastructure to care for all of the older adults particularly the baby boomers who are going to require lots of services and lots of experts and so our program aims to train individuals to deal with some of those issues so it will be important for persons to obtain that kind of specialized nutrition training to deal with our future concerns regarding older adults obesity diabetes metabolic syndrome and some of the other issues that are coming into play
