I have been a student of foods and nutrition for almost 20 years. I have a A.A.S. degree in Nutrition and was held a DTR position in a hospital for five years. I became discouraged when I realized I was not making a difference in peoples lives. I left the field and have experienced significant success in a totally different field (Transportation Logistics), but after 10 years I am hearing the call to return to my real interests: nutrition. I have been a vegetarian since August 1999 (although I realize now I was born a vegetarian). I strive for a vegan diet, but sometimes my lifestyle prohibits this.

I love to read, research, write and share my knowledge with others, but I am not good at working with my hands (example: lab work). Do I need a degree heavily based in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, etc., all lab based courses, to study nutrition? I know of a Masters degree in Nutrition Communication from Tufts University, but I am not sure what to pursue as an undergraduate degree.

I will be 41 years old in a few weeks and believe my calling is to teach people how foods and nutrition can improve their lives.

Do you have any suggestions?
