Bismarck college offers nutrition therapy program

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- United Tribes Technical College has started a medical nutrition therapy program to help students and others with health issues.

The program through the Bismarck school's Lewis Goodhouse Wellness Center aims to help with major issues such as obesity and diabetes, though it also will help with other health questions.

Instructor Wanda Agnew tells The Bismarck Tribune that nutrition is integral to good health but it often can be difficult for people to access more specific information. She says having access to dietitians will help not only students and faculty but the community at large.
