Education Abroad Programs in Dietetics and Human Nutrition 

"Studying abroad helped me gain new perspectives about different food related issues in developing countries. I gained insight about how post-harvest practices play a major role in providing safe, nutritious andaffordable meals to people.

One of my favorite parts of studying aboard was being able to see a sustainable school feeding program in a rural Ghanaian village which provided nutritious meals to kindergarten students. This school feeding program was started by Dr. Mullins- a UK Human Nutrition faculty member. Dr. Mullins passion for food and nutrition sparked a renewed interest in my love for studying Human Nutrition at UK."
