Teaching Weight Management classes on good nutrition with RD, Claudia Utlintz, University Hospitals Parma Medical Center in Weight Loss Clinic (Summer 2014)
Every 2-3 weeks in the summer, I taught nutrition lessons to patients involved in the weight loss clinic at University Hospitals Parma Medical Center. I was given specific topics and made presentations with activities. Nutrition topics included reading a food label, eating well during the holidays, and the importance of fats, carbohydrates, and sugars.
Shadowed RD, Ann Jakubowski, MetroHealth Center- Wik (Summer 2014)
Spent the day learning Ann's role as a dietitian in her facility. I learned an abundance of information about community nutrition, the importance of nutrition during pregnancy, children nutrition, and breast feeding.
