Community Nutrition, Second Edition, introduces future nutrition professionals to the relationship between nutritional epidemiology and the research, policies, and programs regarding prevention and treatment.

Organized into three comprehensive parts—Part One: Nutrition in US Communities, Part Two: Primary Preventions of Disease, and Part Three: Secondary and Tertiary Prevention-Managing Disease and Avoiding Complications—this text not only covers general population nutrition, but also men’s and women’s health, diverse populations, and special populations.

By exploring nutritional epidemiology through community planning for health promotion and disease prevention, future professionals will be prepared to promote self-management, behavioral change, and environmental interaction in their communities.

New trends and research findings have changed and continue to change prevention and treatment in the United States. This Second Edition has been thoroughly updated to provide the practical tools and current research essential to the success of today’s nutrition professionals.
