KU Port St. Lucie Campus Students Share Heart Health Insights with Seniors
Four Dietetics and Nutrition students from Keiser University’s Port St. Lucie’s campus recently enjoyed visiting residents and family members at the Watercrest Senior Living Center.
Led by Professor Barbara Truitt, the group provided helpful tips relating to the implementation of dietary fruits and vegetables as well as the importance of fiber and antioxidants. As part of the experience, residents enjoyed hummus made from scratch, whole-grain bread, and smoothies complete with berries, nut milk, honey, Greek yogurt and spinach.
Keiser University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics and Nutrition combines clinical evaluation, community concerns, and food service management into a profession long valued for its service to individuals and the community at large and focused on proper nutrition and the prevention of chronic diseases. The Coordinated Program in Dietetics is unique since the didactic instruction is integrated with the supervised practice. Following graduation, students are eligible to take the Registered Dietitian/Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) examination. Upon successful completion of this exam, the RD/RDN is eligible for a license in Florida or any other state that licenses dietitians/nutritionists.
