Despite the variety of career paths, there are foundational components of public health nutrition including the 10 Essential Public Health Services, the social determinants of health and theoretical frameworks that contain concepts of cultural and linguistic competence. Module 1 will specifically focus on a social ecological model that provides a theoretical framework used by many public health nutrition professionals.
