D. H. Sc. in Health Sciences, M.S. in Human Nutrition
Nutrition Institute

My name is Kristen Rohrer. M.Ed., M.S., and I currently work as an adjunct faculty member at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland, a nutrition educator, and group aerobics instructor at Jazzercise Fitness Center in Glen Burnie, MD.  I just finished a clinical nutrition internship at a chiropractic office in Annapolis, MD, and recently fulfilled the requirements for CNS certification which will allow me to oversee the clinical nutrition program at Jazzercise Fitness Center.

I had the pleasure of taking Dr. Grazia’s nutritional therapeutics course through UB’s online human nutrition program, and it was one of my favorite classes.  I really enjoyed his lectures and the information was very applicable to real life, so when I heard about the online D.H.Sc. program through UB, and that he was developing the curriculum, I jumped at the chance to apply.

I am in my first semester of the program and I am loving it; the instructors are phenomenal; information is presented clearly and effectively, discussion boards are dynamic and engaging, and the pacing of the program is designed to fit the busy needs of a health professional, which is a perfect fit for me and my demanding schedule.

My estimated semester for graduation is May, 2019, and with this degree, I will be eligible to teach health and nutrition courses at the university level, anywhere!  After graduating from UB’s Graduate Program in Human Nutrition, I feel that UB graduates stand out because of the quality of education, the knowledge of the instructors, and the curriculum design, and the D.H.Sc. program is no exception!  With the tools this program provides, I feel that I can become a leading health professional in my field.
