Toward nurturing body and spirit through nutrition
Degenerative chronic disease such as diabetes and dyslipidemia are increasing in Japan today. Therefore, the expertise of the dietitian is highly awaited. In response to such an expectation and need, the Department of licensed Dietitians in the Faculty of Health and Nutrition is focused on cultivating expert dietitians. In the years ahead, the main focus will be placed on prevention. Up until recently most registered dietitians have placed an emphasis on treating those who are already suffering, such as diabetics. The job of the dietitian, whether registered or otherwise, is dealing with people up front. They strive to understand the psychology of the prospective patients in order to appropriately carry out their professional goals. "Taking care of physical and mental health" is what our faculty's teaching philosophy is all about. We also collaborate with those disciplines with which we have interests in common.
