"UTSPH gave me the building blocks for the foundation on which my career is based on now. My MPH has given me the ability to bring a new approach to patient care and program planning & evaluation. Not to mention, its a huge bonus in my Spokesperson role for the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. I couldn't have asked for a more well-rounded training." --Kristi King, MPH, RDN, CNSC, LD, Senior Pediatric Dietitian at Texas Children's Hospital & Clinical Instructor at Baylor College of Medicine
"Working in the Nourish Kitchen helped me develop culinary skills that are imperative for nutrition professionals. Additionally, I believe I developed greater self-confidence in public speaking as a result of the various opportunities in the Nourish Kitchen, such as Lunch and Learns and Culinary Medicine classes." --Olivia Sanchez, MPH, RDN, LD, Clinical Dietitian, Laredo Medical Center
"The Simulation Lab was a huge help in building my confidence to go into my clinical rotations. Having the practice and experience conducting assessments on Mr. Sims led me to feel completely ready to start seeing patients on my first day of clinical rotation. This practice has also helped me in my current role knowing what questions to ask and what to look for when assessing my patients for malnutrition." --Diana Guevara, MPH, RDN, LD, Clinical Dietitian, Harris Health Systems
“Working as the Holistic Garden Manager for the Nourish Program gave me confidence in my abilities to manage volunteers, design and implementing seed-to-plate nutrition curriculum, and develop menus centered around the seasonality of produce. As Garden Manager, I learned how to use gardening as a tool to inspire curiosity and effectively engage children in nutrition education efforts.” –Marissa Albers, MPH, RDN, LD, Dietitian and Marketing Coordinator for Lake Travis Independent School District
