As my rotation in Medical Nutrition Therapy came to a close, so began the annual conference for the Kentucky Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (KAND).
Affiliated with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, KAND shares in the mission of empowering members to be food and nutrition leaders. Additionally, this organization is an advocate of the dietetics profession serving the public through the promotion of optimal nutrition, health and well-being.
This was my first experience with KAND and it was inspiring to be surrounded by like-minded individuals, who have also chosen to devote their work to improving the nutritional status of the public.
This week was my last full work week at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. It is hard to believe ten weeks have passed by just like that, but here we are near the end of my rotation. It was another great week learning about medical nutrition therapy alongside the clinical dietitians.
Yet another week of experience is in the books. Medical Nutrition Therapy at FRMC is winding down, and I am realizing there is little time left for cramming as much knowledge into my brain as possible before moving on down the road.
March is National Nutrition Month and the Food and Nutrition office at Franklin Regional Medical Center is celebrating! This year the theme set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is "Savor the Flavor," and we have a plan that will help people branch out their taste buds.
