Hi all! I'm looking forward to seeing this community take off : ) I'm currently in my fifth (and final!) year getting my Dietetics bachelor's degree. I love this major. There is just so much you can go and do with it. I'd love to get into Hollistic Nutrition or anything Renal related. We recently had an allergist come in and talk to us for my last Food Science lecture. That might be fun : ) Organizing things is one of my stronger suits.
Thanks for starting this community : ) Current Mood: creative
I am so happy i found this community :)
I am a sophomore at community college and I am taking classes to prepare me for transfer to a school where I can specialize in dietetics. Going to a school where the majority of the population is either hoping to get into nursing school or hoping to get into engineering school I feel sort of like the lone future nutrition major flying with a flock of pre-nursing students. I can't wait to transfer so that i can get fully emmersed in the nutrition program!
I have been trying to set up a job shadow with a dietitian, have any of you done that? I think it might be a good experience and also a good bonus when you are applying to an internship program.
Another nutrition thing that i am involved with is a site called thepinkmachine.com which is currently undergoing some nip tucks but i would eventually like to make it into a resource for teens to find nutrition information and guidance.
currently i am done with all my math and starting my chem series and it is kicking my ass!! but i think i'll pull through!
This is my first community I started. Hope people join it!
The community is open to all, even if said person does not go to school and is majoring in nutrition.
This summer, (and I guess you can say for the past two years) I have been taking college classes preparing me to obtain a degree in nutrition at IUP (Indiana University of PA). This summer I am taking Chem I and Chem II, in the fall I will be starting my freshmen of college. I love knowing the effects of certain foods directly on your body, like what carbs brake down into and happens to your body when you digest it. I love anything to do with food and health.
Here are some facts about nutrition: (and nutritionists)
