DI Students Learn from Farm to Fork

Dietetic Interns learn Farm to Fork in SaginawIn early November, NFS graduate Dietetic Interns participated in a local event sponsored by the Texas Beef Council called "Farm to Fork." In addition to receiving science-based learning, they traveled to a local ranch in Saginaw, Texas, hosted by the Pete Bonds family owned and operated ranch. This opportunity allowed DIs to see where some protein-rich food is produced. As future Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, they will work with patients and clients to provide medical nutrition therapy and nutrition education for all ages and backgrounds.
