Become an officer and add an extra boost to your resume. The application to become an officer can be found here.

National Nutrition Month: Part Two

Nutrition Cover

March is National Nutrition Month, and this is part two of two articles this month with helpful information from Pat McKnight, MS, RDN, LD, FADA, FAND, assistant professor.

One of the problem nutrients identified by the Dietary Guidelines 2020-2025 is calcium. I see this often in the dietary records of patients that students submit for assignments. People say they "don't like milk" so they omit it without adding any other source of calcium. Osteoporosis is a painful disease that can be prevented, but you have to start with children to build the bone mass and then as adults to maintain it. Adults need 2 cups of milk or equivalents and older adults need 3 cups. How are YOU doing? See the chart for calcium sources.
