Below are some quick facts about the SPHNC: 

• The course is comprised of 7 modules, each containing 2-7 sessions. There are 31 course sessions in total 

• Each session features a variety of interactive assessments (case studies, refreshers and quizzes), expert video talks, an additional resources section, and a nutrition based glossary 

• Each session will take approximately 2 hours to complete and review the additional resources associated with each session
