On February 13, 2014, the Murray State Dietetic Interns visited Frankfort for the Kentucky Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Legislative Day at the Capitol. The interns began their day by hearing presentations from Senator Paul Hornback (District 20) and Senator Jared Carpenter (District 34) who each provided a brief background into some of the legislation dealing with nutrition and healthcare. They were able to observe the passage of two health care bills in the Health & Welfare Committee Meeting and attend the Senate Legislative session. The interns were also given a tour of the Capitol and heard the history behind our state capitol and leaders.
