December Volunteer Opportunity

Westmoreland High School of Sumner County needs your help!  They are looking for a volunteer to speak to their health and fitness classes about the importance of good nutrition.  The class consists of 45-50 students from a variety of grade levels and runs from 8:00-9:30am.  If you’re interested, please contact Jackie Kelley at 615-644-2280 or email at Jackie.kelley@sumnerschool.org.  Dates are flexible.

Volunteer Opportunity

Standard

Meharry Medical College and Glencliff High School are in need of a registered dietitian!

On November 16, 2017, Glencliff culinary students will visit the Meharry cafeteria and interface with their contracted food vendor, Metz. They will tour the kitchen, learn about food preparation, and attend a session facilitated by a registered dietitian. The students will rotate through in groups of eight, providing the dietitian with three, 30-minute sessions to share about the career field.  The layout of the day is as follows:

10:00am – Session I
10:30am – Session II
11:00am – Session III
11:30am – Lunch
12:00pm – Departure

The registered dietitian will talk to students about the role of dietitians in a hospital setting. While a clinical dietitian would be desirable, anyone willing and comfortable with this responsibility is certainly welcome.  In addition to sharing with students about the role of a registered dietitian, an interactive activity should also be included.

If you’re interested, please contact Polina Vorobeychik at polinkav@gmail.com.
