Dietitians and nutritionists use their knowledge of  the principles of nutrition to help people develop healthy eating habits. Dietitians may be involved in setting up and supervising food service systems for institutions such as hospitals, prisons, and schools; and promoting sound eating habits through education and research. Clinical dietitians provide nutritional services for patients in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, or doctors’ offices. Community dietitians counsel individuals and groups on nutritional practices designed to prevent disease and promote good health.  Management dietitians are responsible for large scale meal planning and preparation in such places as hospitals, nursing homes, company cafeterias, and schools.

Southern Adventist University offers associate degree programs which provide the prerequisite courses for entrance into the final two years of the bachelors degree programs of both Andrews University and Loma Linda University.
