Strategic Focus

We aim to develop research that allows the updating, generation and dissemination of relevant scientific knowledge for the professional performance of the dietitian nutritionist. This is in order to benefit the diverse populations served in food and nutrition programs for communities, and thus to highlight the contribution of food and nutrition services to the promotion of health and good eating habits, to the prevention of diseases, and to the treatment of these in both clinical and institutional services.
