"The flexibility of the program structure has allowed me to balance my studies with other commitments and has been conducive to my academic success."
Molly Schweitzer, neonatal dietician, UC Davis Medical Center
“I truly think that we have some top-notch professors. I think it’s really exceptional to have professors who are experts and people doing research on the ground.”
"When I found this program, I was shocked by how specific it is. I don’t think there is another program like this in the country. I also like that this program provides both the education and clinical training you need for the International Board of Lactation Consultant exam."
Jessica Kearney, registered dietitian manager and nutrition education coordinator, The Resource Connection of Amador and Calaveras WIC Program
"The Maternal and Child Nutrition Program is where I gained the most academic knowledge and skills. We were educated on the most up-to-date research findings from those who were leading the studies. The program is invaluable. The largest impact on my career was the amount of additional respect I gained from my peers and management. I became the ultimate expert in the office."
Katy Wright, registered dietician, UC Davis Medical Center
"I had my heart set on the Maternal and Child Nutrition Program from the moment I learned about it. It greatly expanded my perspective on the overlap of maternal and child health, public health programs, and policies that shape the way nutrition care is provided and perceived. Now, I can be a much better advocate for both my patients and for advancing my profession."
