The remaining 5 Lectures will proceed in the following way:

Tuesday 11-24 – Chapters 12 and 13 – Minerals Lecture – Major and Trace – there could be a whole semester class on minerals – but I will cover the basics in one lecture.  It will be exciting and earth shattering as usual!

After Thanksgiving:

Tuesday 12-1 – Lecture on Diet Assignment & Vitamin supplements – All assignment grades will be in Grade Book by Monday, 11-30 – Have you Diet Assignments available so you can ask questions.  Ask about vitamins and supplements!

Thursday 12-3 – Obesity Explosion Discussion – Are there additional topics needed for the second edition?  Possibly discuss Eating Disorders here!

Tuesday 12-8 – Life Cycle Nutrition Lecture – Nutrition & Breast Feeding – Human milk – Guest Lecture by Marijke Rittmann, RD.

Thursday 12-10 – Review for Final Exam – Not cumulative – so only water and fat soluble vitamins; minerals, diet assignment, Obesity Explosion, and Life Cycle Nutrition questions are covered – in the past students did very well on this exam even before the open book format was used.

Tuesday 12-15255 Final Exam will be on Canvas at 12:00 Noon (given at 3 times as for the first two exams –times to be announced)
