It is official. Two and a half weeks from today I will start a dietetic internship with the University of Northern Colorado! Woo hoo! This is the last step that I need before I can sit for my board exam and (hopefully) become a Registered Dietitian! For this internship, I will be working with the local WIC program (a personal favorite for me… I might be biased), the Weld County Health Department, Northern Colorado Medical Center, Poudre Valley Health Systems, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, and the Weld County School District. I am stoked to start.
This morning it finally sank in that the internship is actually here as I had my mandatory blood work, drug test, and a brand new tetanus shot done for the University’s records. Whew. That was fun. 😉
But the closer I get to starting, the more excited I am about the organizations that I will get to know and help out with. I will update the blog often with the things I am learning, but for now, I will leave you with an article about the School District that I will be working with!
See why I am excited?! 🙂
