”Throughout my academic journey at bet36365体育, I've trained for professional roles with skills like administering stress tests, measuring exercising blood pressure, and interpreting research. My coursework integrated practical experiences, introducing me to the profession of a Registered Dietitian and fortifying my academic foundation. Within the Kinesiology and Sports Sciences Department, I've donned multiple hats—student, employee, and coach. As an employee, I collaborated with faculty to create nutrition education materials and develop a virtual cookbook for athletes. As a coach, I helped youth athletes build strength, coordination, and nutrition habits. With all these experiences, I am prepared to excel in the Medical Nutrition profession.”
