I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, because there’s really not a lot to say at the moment, mostly because there’s a lot I can’t say for reasons of patient confidentiality. For the past two weeks, I’ve been doing some supervised practice hours in an outpatient clinic at a Seattle hospital. I’ve had a chance to observe and/or help provide nutrition information and counseling to a variety of patients. There have been sports nutrition patients, eating disorder patients, patients with type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol, and a few patients who have gained weight for one reason or another and want help getting back on track. It’s been great, and I love it!
I’m also working on a project related to the Food for Fertility classes I’ve been assisting with, as part of my MPH practicum. Speaking of which, for those readers in the greater Seattle area, if you or a woman you know is dealing with infertility and may benefit from improved nutrition or weight loss, the next session of Food for Fertility is starting February 9 at Seattle Reproductive Medicine. You can learn more on the official FFF page.
