Written for the graduate-level nutrition course, Nutrition Assessment: Clinical and Research Applications explores the purpose, methods, and scientific basis for nutritional assessment in community, clinical, and individual nutrition settings. It provides students with the basic knowledge and skills to identify nutrition problems, develop research questions and study hypotheses, and plan nutrition interventions and treatments.

Divided into six sections, Nutrition Assessment opens with a historical perspective of nutrition assessment as well as an overview of the basis of scientific and nutritional research. The next four sections delve into the primary methods of nutritional assessment: dietary, anthropometric, biochemical, and clinical assessments. The final section is intended to cover public health topics including population wellness, health coaching, nutrition interventions, and international research.
