Nutrition in the treatment, management and prevention of disease focuses on disease-facing (both communicable and non-communicable) topics and includes foods and nutrients as risk factors for diseases, nutrition in strategies for disease prevention, nutrition in the management and treatment of clinical conditions. This theme would relate to associated disciplines such as dietetics and dentistry and the prevention strand would have some overlap with Theme one.
