Free Livestream for Dietetic Students and Interns: Medical Nutrition Therapy in the Pediatric Patient

As we all know, the impact of COVID-19 on dietetic internships and DPD programs has forced programs to move practice hours and coursework online.

Here at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, the Nutrition Therapy Department host dietetic interns and student for multiple programs for supervised practice hours and a pediatric practicum. We pride ourselves as an educational hub for future dietitians. Though we have had to temporarily suspend our intern rotations, we are happy to announce we are hosting our pediatric practicum online.

Medical Nutrition Therapy in the Pediatric Patient is a virtual practicum hosted by the Nutrition Therapy Department at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN.

This FREE event will feature live presentations from Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital staff on evidence-based practice, research, and education in pediatric nutrition. Participants will apply the knowledge they have learned in multiple case scenarios. Though this event is designed for dietetic interns, this event is open to undergraduate, graduate, and internship students of nutrition/dietetics.

Please note: This is a free event, but registration is required. This event will not be recorded. CEUs will NOT be offered for attending this event.
