The purpose of this project is to create a module using the Health Meets Food platform that will teach students how to offer appropriate diet and nutrition counseling to patients identifying as African American, African immigrant, Asian, or Hispanic. The module will include a lesson about the common foods, cultural aspects of food, and attitudes and behaviors associated with food in prominent African American, African immigrant, Asian, and Hispanic cultures present in the United States. Students will be able to apply their learned skills with a nutrition-focused case study at the end of the lesson. Their skills and knowledge will be assessed using a quiz at the end. The students will practice cooking skills through appropriate recipes and connect them to the module lesson. The module will be available to healthcare professionals and students majoring or enrolled in a nutrition health class.
