WHOLE FOOD NUTRITION FINAL PROJECT:
EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH PROJECT
The Education Outreach Project is the final project for the Whole Food Nutrition Term. The purpose for this outreach is two fold. The first reason is to improve the community and friends around you. The second reason is for your own learning. It is said that the the best way to learn a topic is to teach it. However, we recognize that for may people public speaking can be a source of anxiety and unneeded stress. So we remind you that the we have made the requirements of who you present this class to fairly broad.
Presentation Prep Requirements:
- A topic needs to be submitted to your Clinical Advisor for approval before your educational outreach project can be delivered. A short overview no more than one paragraph is adequate.
- Once approved, your presentation must include 3 parts.
- 1) A brief overview of what you will be covering including the legal disclaimer.
- 2) The presentation itself must be 15 – 60 minutes.
- 3) End with a invitation to action. This invitation to action may include inviting them to change their diet, try a new nutrient, set some of their own goals for lifestyle changes, etc.
- Topic ideas: A healthy food preparation class that includes some hands on preparation. A movie party to show a movie such as “Fed Up” or “Sugar Coated”. Then lead a 15-30 min discussion on the movie following its showing. A church or community principles of healthy eating class. There are many topics to choose from. Focus on having fun and making this a positive stress free experience that you will want to repeat often.
