IUP dietetic interns at DESSG meetingOn October 5, the Department of Food and Nutrition’s Dietetic Internship Program hosted a meeting for 40 dietetic interns and faculty from education programs in our region.

The Department of Food and Nutrition is a member of an inter-university coalition, the Dietetic Education Seminar Study Group, that shares the responsibility for providing education to dietetic interns. The DESSG was developed by dietetic internship programs in Western Pennsylvania, and each year the group develops a professional meeting series including emerging professional topics.

The IUP Dietetic Internship Program hosted the first of four meetings and featured four IUP Food and Nutrition faculty who discussed sustainability, complementary and alternative medicine, nutrigenomics, and program evaluation.
