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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
