Last month, PPN director Kate Save delivered the ‘Nutrition’ module for the Australian Defence Force Physical Training Instructor course.
“The 22 week course is predominantly delivered by my staff; however, as a school we are heavily reliant on subject matter expertise and relevant industry experience that only specialists in the field can provide,” explains Royal Australian Navy Lieutenant Commander CJ Holloway.
In a letter addressed to Kate, he writes: “Your nutritional expertise combined with your exercise physiologist background enabled you to fully contextualise the delivery of the module relevant the student’s needs. Feedback from my staff and students was very positive and they relished in the practical real life examples and myth busting you provided to promote healthy lifestyles. Your delivery of the module was scientifically based and supported by published peer reviewed evidence. This factor alone was invaluable to the students who must continually evaluate new and popular press fads whilst advising their future clients.”
Kate says she and the rest of the PPN team will continue to assist the Australian Defence Force in any way they can and that she looks forward to participating in future courses, helping the people who serve our country are able to ensure their own health too.
