It’s hard to believe that a new crop of dietetic interns are about to be released into the real world. It feels like I only just finished up my own internship!

The interns are putting on their annual conference tomorrow, Friday the 25th, from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm in SPH1 room 1690. I would normally direct you to the SPH events calendar, but it’s not listed. Do, however, check out other events that are happening at SPH or around campus!

I know how difficult it is to put together the materials for this conference while juggling your internship and other responsibilities. It’s quite the milestone to mark the end of a long process. The interns have put a lot of thought and effort into their presentation, so please show up (even for a little bit) and support them!
