(From the Introduction)

The purpose of the field experience was to supplement the student's on-campus academic education in nutrition and to broaden her concept of public health work at the state and local levels. The specific objectives of the student were: (1) to study the organization, administration, and functions of an official public health agency, (2) to determine how nutrition programs are planned and executed, (3) to learn how nutrition is integrated into the overall public health program, and (4) to develop an appreciation for the programs and services of other disciplines in the public health agency.
