While the clinical stuff is really fun, one of my favorite classes in my dietetics program was Community Nutrition. That’s the class where we learned how assess a community’s needs, then design programs & policies to meet those needs. (And if you know anything about me, you know that’s where my heart lies.)
My project for that class was to attend a community meeting & present what I learned to the class. I was very fortunate to be able to attend a panel in Miami presented by Common Threads where several very smart people discussed health disparities in the black community.
This is my presentation. I hope that it sheds a light on possible community solutions to a big public health issue.
