Mrs. Faulkner’s Meal Management students worked hard to create some great garnishes!
Student organizations in our department are hosting a drive for the Bear Essentials Food Pantry on campus.
March is National Nutrition Month and March 8TH is RDN Day, and here at UCA we want to wish ALL RDs a Happy RDN Day, we appreciate all you do for the profession and for the nutrition/dietetics students.
Let’s put our Best Fork Forward! Check out what the UCA Dietetic Interns did to honor RDN’s on campus. Happy RDN Day!
Congratulations to AAFCS President and FACS education major, Joshua Edinger Lucero. Joshua’s name was placed on the AAFCS ballot for a national office. WAY TO GO JOSHUA!
Last week Mrs. Faulkner’s class presented at Southridge Village Assisted Living facility. Four nutrition students gave a presentation and answered questions regarding “healthy snacks”, “low sodium options”, “healthier beverage choices” and “healthier sweet food options”. Way to go Mrs. Faulkner and Nutrition students!
The Dietetic Interns taught Nutrition Focused Physical Exam procedures to the Senior Seminar class on 2/6/17. First, Audrey and Helena performed a demonstration of the entire NFPE. Then we split the class into six groups. We had six stations set up to thoroughly go over different sections of the NFPE. The stations included: protocol, readiness, head, torso, legs, and one other I can’t remember! Then we concluded with a case study with the whole class participating. Everything went really well!
