Know the signs and risks of dehydration and keep the fluids flowing to avoid overheating this summer or whenever temperatures rise
Sustainable Water Management
Rising temperatures, fires raging out of control in the American West and Europe, increasingly fierce storms: they are all consequences of climate change induced by human consumption of fossil fuels, according to the latest report from the United Nations, written by scientists from around the world.
The important purpose for proposing this course is to understand complications of kidney disease and plan various nutritional managements for the different stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and various types of other kidney disease. The Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) course provides basic nutritional management of CKD and end stage of kidney disease (ESKD). However, CKD is very complicated and the most recent trend of medical and nutritional managements of CKD have been changing from renal replacement therapy for ESKD to prevention of progression of CKD.
Dear Returning and New Students,
I hope that your summer has started well. We are very much looking forward to seeing you this coming fall. I write to you now to provide details regarding delivery of courses for the upcoming fall semester. Please read the below information carefully.
Climate change is one of the most pressing problems in the world today. This course will focus on the projected impacts of climate change around the world and related adaptations, with particular attention to humanitarian impacts and food systems. Students will cover climate risk assessment, risk perception, risk communication, and climate risk management/adaptation. The course will cover major climate impacts by sector, as well as their interactions and humanitarian implications. Each week of class will have two components: a lecture component and a lab component.
This course is designed for graduate students who are interested in understanding, interpreting, and designing studies related to precision nutrition. Precision nutrition includes three levels: (1) dietary recommendations based on guidelines for population subgroups by age, gender, and other social determinants, (2) individualized nutrition recommendations issued from deep and refined phenotyping, and (3) nutrition recommendations based on an individual’s genetic background.
