Nutrition students are often uncertain about the benefit of attending the Career Fairs sponsored each semester. If you are interested in a Dietetic Internship or summer experience in a hospital, you are not likely to find representatives at these fairs. But, if you are looking for jobs in a pharmaceutical, food manufacturer or marketing environment, health care services and administration, or social and human services, the non-technical career day, September 16, may have many opportunities. Students looking for summer internship or Co-op experiences in similar areas can attend the fair on September 17th. Basic science students will find interesting opportunities on the Technical careers day on September 18th. Students do find employers that value the applied and basic science background provided in the nutrition degree. The Fall Career Fair begins next week. This week, workshops are being conducted to help you prepare for the experience. Visit the Career Fairs web site for more information.
Joy Bauer, nutrition and health expert for NBC’s Today Show, has two internship openings available for the fall semester. The internships are unpaid and will run from September 2, 2012 through mid-January. Students who have completed an undergraduate degree in nutrition or at least one semester of coursework in a graduate nutrition program are eligible to apply. Though our company is based in New York City, we communicate with interns remotely via email and telephone. The time commitment is part-time, approximately 10 to 15 hours per week, but is subject to vary depending on Joy’s media schedule. Responsibilities include researching nutrition topics for Today show segments; magazines; and other national media, writing articles and other materials for Joy’s website and social media, and performing some administrative tasks.

If you are interested, please email your resume and cover letter to Tina Carlucci (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 14, 2014.

Join Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps for a hands-on, immersive and unique global health experience.
A transformative volunteer abroad experience for students and professionals, Unite For Sight is renowned as the highest quality global health immersion and volunteer abroad program worldwide. Unite For Sight prides itself on offering the best global health experience for our volunteers, coupled with the highest quality healthcare delivery programs with our local doctor partners.
Locations of Year-Round Health Care Delivery: Ghana, Honduras, and India

What do Unite For Sight volunteers do? Unite For Sight’s Volunteer Abroad Program is an immersive global health experience for students and professionals who are interested in public health, international development, medicine, or social entrepreneurship. Volunteers participate with and learn from Unite For Sight’s talented local partner doctors who have provided care to nearly 1.8 million patients living in poverty, including more than 80,000 sight-restoring surgeries. Volunteers assist with patient education, visual acuity testing, patient intake, distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local eye doctors, and other important support tasks. They also have the opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local doctors. Additionally, volunteers may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an optional program for those interested in pursuing research. For example, we currently have volunteers pursuing research studies about medication management, the use of visual resources for patient education, traditional medicine practices, and patient barriers to eye care.
Unite For Sight is the only organization in the world that:
- is a healthcare delivery organization that also offers immersive global health education opportunities for students and professionals;
- uses 100% of all donations and funds submitted to directly provide care for patients who are otherwise unable to access or afford care;
- directly teaches the importance of supporting and assisting local professionals in their own social ventures to eliminate disparities in their communities and countries;
- offers an opportunity to learn from local medical professionals about effective strategies to reach the hardest-to-reach patients in villages, slums, and refugee camps;
- develops comprehensive training materials in cultural competency, ethics, and global health best practices to prepare its volunteers for a high-impact immersive experience.

Keystone Diabetic Kids Camp (KDKC) is a camp where children with type 1 diabetes between the ages ages 8 – 15 can come to have fun, meet other kids with diabetes and experience camp. KDKC will be held at the Camp Victory facility, located in central Pennsylvania from June 15 – 20, 2014. Throughout the week campers work closely with counselors, clinicians and dietitians to learn more about their diabetes and diabetes management in a casual, non-clinical environment while they participate in all the activities Camp Victory has to offer.
KDKC is looking to employ volunteers as Dietetic Interns from June 14-20, 2014. We ask that the volunteers have an interest in getting nutrition experience by working with children who have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. They would be responsible for determining the carbohydrate count of meals and snacks, helping the campers to count their carbohydrates during the meal times, creating a nutrition education lesson for the age group they are assigned to and help during the day at various activities. If you are interested in having this experience, please fill out the Camp Staff application and email it to email@example.com .
We are looking forward to working with you and your students!
