Interns Educating on NFPE

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 IMG_2395 (1)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!
