This year the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is celebrating 70 years of our Idaho affiliate! As part of our celebration, we would like to recognize what Idaho Dietetic Interns and Students are doing and where they would like to go after the completion of their dietetic program. Today we are recognizing:
Patrick is a senior student in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics at the University of Idaho. After graduation, Patrick would like to work as a Clinical Dietitian.
“I became interested in nutrition through exercise. I became passionate about working out, and found that I had a lot of questions about food and nutrition. “
“I am still very open to most types of work, but as of now, I feel most drawn to clinical dietetics. I really enjoy the trouble-shooting aspect of reading through charts and identifying pieces of the puzzle.”
