The underlying theme of the Certificate of Advanced Study in Integrative and Functional Nutrition is to educate and train nutrition and other health professionals in personalized approaches to health and wellness by enhancing their understanding of nutrition within the context of the individual’s genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors through educational training that is evidence based using the Nutrition Care Process and Model.
The CAS will be open to current graduate students in Nutrition Science at Syracuse University, current nutrition graduate students from other universities, practicing Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) with an undergraduate and/or graduate degree in nutrition and other health professionals. A minimum GPA of 3.0 will be required.
