The Murray State Dietetic Interns visit Frankfort each year for the Kentucky Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Legislative Day at the Capitol. The interns begin their day by hearing presentations from elected officials who provide a brief background into some of the current legislation dealing with nutrition and health care. Interns are then able to observe committee meetings and attend Legislative sessions. A highlight of the day is when the interns are given a tour of the Capitol and hear the history behind our state capitol and leaders.

 

Interns prepare a special meal for clinical training site employees.
