We are the Estudiante de Dietetica program, and we have been helping students engage in Spanish-nutrition building skills since 2010. In efforts to decrease the health disparities that plague the Spanish-speaking communities, our students complete service-learning hours and community activities to increase their competence, confidence, skills and abilities to help prevent disease, and help people improve their health including community members who only speak Spanish.
With your help and support, we can continue to provide the experiences needed to equip our students to become leaders in health, nutrition and wellness. From purchasing books, reference manuals, and dictionaries, to supporting current students with fall and spring scholarships so they can prioritize their academic goals. Funds will also go towards financing cooking demonstrations, nutrition workshops and seminars that students lead in fall and spring semesters.
To keep our students engaged, and to offer a sense of belonging, we also have an Estudiante de Dietetica student club, where members are able to meet professionals in the field, be paired up with an alumni mentor, and build professional skills within our executive board membership.
Please take a look at our mini video highlighting our students below:
Somos El Futuro, We are the Future
We thank each and every one of you in advance for visiting our platform. We hope to continue the legacy of our Spanish emphasis program, to keep inspiring the leaders and wellness providers of tomorrow.
