There are also two major assignments (100 points each) to be completed individually, outside of class: 1) Personal Nutrition Assessment Project, 2) Research Presentation and Paper. Case studies, papers, presentations and nutrient analysis are due on date as shown in the syllabus. Missed dates will result in zero score.
