Nutrition informatics is defined as the "intersection of nutrition, information, and technology" and it is an exciting and ever-evolving field. Yet, it is important to first understand the principles of informatics as a discipline and how nutrition informatics fits into the larger picture of health informatics and health information technology. This presentation will walk through this pathway from all angles and will highlight examples from various aspects of nutrition practice (clinical, public health, research, etc.).
- Define what nutrition informatics is and how it is used by dietitians
- Describe the different types of nutrition informatics
- Identify potential careers in nutrition informatics
