Damion Pollard
Master of Science Applied Human Nutrition



Damion Pollard had recently completed an undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Geography and was teaching in an Ontario private school when he decided to enrol in the Mount’s Master of Science Applied Human Nutrition program. Now, Damion plans to combine his passion for education with the knowledge of nutrition and dietetics that he’s gaining through his graduate studies. He hopes to work in schools or communities, reaching out to children and adolescents who need support.


MSC AHN: A Program with Community Ties


Damion chose Mount Saint Vincent University MSc AHN program because he was interested in the research and the courses that are designed to draw on a variety of student skills from presenting to analyzing current research. But it’s the program’s ties to the community that really stand out to him now.

“The most rewarding part of the program is getting to apply your skills in many settings throughout the community,” he says. “Representing the Mount as a student, intern, student club leader, and interested community member has allowed me make very strong academic and professional connections.”


A Degree that Opens New Doors


We asked Damion whether he would recommend the MSc AHN to other students. He didn’t hesitate.

“I would DEFINITELY recommend this program to other students, especially students who are ready and excited to be exposed to many different learning opportunities. This degree is one that not only opens doors but shows you a few that you may not have realized in the past.”
