Dietetic Internship Program Highlights
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 have the opportunity to meet with local and regional legislative representatives to discuss the importance of their support for nutrition-related bills. 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.
Murray State Dietetic Interns attend The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Nutrition Conference (FNCE) when it is located within a reasonable driving distance from Kentucky. Interns are able to attend educational sessions as well as the food and nutrition expo. Interns gain valuable networking and professional growth opportunities during this event.
