Dietetics

Dietetics is the study of the relationship between nutrition and health. Dietitians specialize in applying their knowledge to issues ranging from prescription diets for people suffering from specific medical conditions to recommendations which are designed to improve the health of entire communities through dietary changes. This branch of the medical field has a number of applications, including clinical treatment, research, and community outreach.
