Dietetic Internship Accredited

Dietetic internship accredited

The university has received developmental accreditation of its dietetic internship program from the American Dietetic Association's Commission on Accreditation/Approval for Dietetic Education, a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education. The association also recognized the commitment of Anita Pershern, dietetics program director; and the food and nutrition department, chaired by Janice Timmer, in support of dietetics education.

The dietetic internship prepares dietetics professionals who are experts on food and nutrition, and promotes optimal health and nutritional status of the public. The need for dietetics practitioners is expected to increase as the role of nutrition in health and the benefits of nutrition intervention in the prevention and treatment of diseases continues to be documented.
