Reshaped Division of Human Nutrition launched
18 February 2009
The Division of Human Nutrition held its official launch on 12 February. The launch comes after a two-year "bridging period", says division head Associate Professor Marjanne Senekal. The division was restructured after moving from the Department of Health and Rehabilitation, where it was known as the Division of Nutrition and Dietetics, to the Department of Human Biology. Old courses were re-curriculated and modularised to meet the new standards set by the Health Professional Council of South Africa for dietetics, and to provide other BSc and health-science honours students with access to individual nutrition courses. A whole complement of new staff was also deployed.
