Please join us at our next SDA meeting, December 7th from 12-1pm in BH 407. Featured speaker, Dan Fenyvesi, is a Registered Dietitian and Fulbright Scholar who has spent years living in Latin America including Nicaragua, Mexico, and Peru. His experience subsisting on a traditional “peasant” diet of beans, corn, and vegetables led to substantial sustainable weight loss and a burst of healthfulness that informs much of his work. Fenyvesi is a professor of nutrition at Montgomery College and has worked as a consultant and instructor for several of the top weight loss companies in the country. He is working on a book and a documentary based on his experiences in Nicaragua.
Today's meeting was a success, we noshed on tamari slaw while hearing from Chef Nate Lopez who told us all about his work with Revolution Foods. There are so many exciting opportunities in the world of dietetics, including intersection with food science, culinary arts, and school nutrition. Thank you to everyone who came out, and to Nate for sharing your story!

SDA General Meeting

Hello Dietetic Students!
I hope that you had a great summer and are getting settled into the fall semester. On behalf of the Student Dietetic Association I would like to invite you all to join us at the first SDA meeting:
Next Thursday Sept. 14th
Rosa Parks A-C in the lower level of Cesar Chavez student center.
You'll have a chance to join the SDA, try some healthy snacks, meet your SDA officers, network with other students and hear about the activities and events we have planned for the year ahead. You will also learn more about joining the SDA subcommittees.
Membership in nutrition related organizations is a big plus on resumes and applications and the SDA is the best place to start getting involved. We will have speakers each month discussing both RD and non-RD track career tracks and food at all meetings. SDA members will also have free entry into the Dietetic Internship Workshop on Oct 7th (more on that to come!). Membership dues are $15 for the semester or $20 for the year, Please bring cash or a check to the first meeting.
Thank you and hope to see you there!
