Mrs. Faulkner’s Meal Management class did some great work garnishing and here’s the proof:
The speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, and dietetics programs came together for a combined lecture and lab led by Dr. Towino Paramby, Dr. Veronica Rowe, and Dr. Nina Roofe. The lecture emphasized the importance of interprofessional collaboration in the healthcare setting. Topics covered included dysphagia, assistive devices used for eating, specific modified diets, scope of practice, and interprofessional collaboration.
Kaki Hockersmith, Interior Design student, and Adrienne Meachum, Adjunct Faculty in Interior Design received the American Society of Interior Design (ASID) South Central Chapter 2016 Excellence in Design Silver Award in the Kitchen Remodel Division. Congratulations Mrs. Meachum and Ms. Hockersmith!
Remember to use #SayYestoFCS with your social media posts!
The social media campaign, “Making a Difference Through Family & Consumer Sciences,” highlights a different theme and strategies that can be carried out through family and consumer sciences education programs (school-based or community-based) each month, all focused on recognizing the importance of both family and consumer sciences educators and programs. We want to engage family and consumer sciences professionals, advocates, and ESPECIALLY program participants who will reach out to their respective social media networks–therefore reaching other prospective family and consumer sciences educators! For October:
- Educators share about why they are a family and consumer sciences educator and the impact they make. Change profile photo to “Proud Educator” image on Twitter and Facebook. Profile photo can be used throughout the campaign. (http://www.aafcs.org/res/Educator_Recruitment/
- University family and consumer sciences education majors share why they chose the major and change profile photo to “Future Educator” image on Twitter and Facebook. Profile photo can be used throughout the campaign. (http://www.aafcs.org/res/Educator_Recruitment
- Program advocates who are not educators or planning to become an educator can use the “Say Yes to FCS” profile image on Twitter and Facebook. Profile photo can be used throughout the campaign. (http://www.aafcs.org/res/Educator_Recruitment/SayYestoFCSProfile.jpg)
- Program participants share photos or videos illustrating what they’ve learned through family and consumer sciences programs/organizations…all possible because of a family and consumer sciences educator.
On Friday September 30th, Dr. Roofe and two dietetic interns, Melissa Minnich and Taylor Sherrill demonstrated Nutrition Focused Physical Exam (NFPE) skills to attendees at the Northwest Arkansas District of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics fall seminar. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, NFPE is a systematic head-to-toe examination of a patient’s physical appearance and function to help determine nutritional status by uncovering any signs of malnutrition, nutrient deficiencies, or nutrient toxicities. NFPE is one of the five domains of a nutrition assessment, along with diet history, medical history, BMI, and clinical data. Earlier this year Conway Regional Medical Center hosted the first NFPE workshop in the state where attendees had the opportunity to practice on real patients during rounds with Academy trainers in very small groups (6 participants and 1 trainer) and became prepared to return to their facility and train RDN colleagues.
