Twenty-six weeks of internship down, six weeks to go. I just finished up a three-week management rotation at UW Medicine, and today I start three weeks of a food service rotation at a Seattle-area school district that has a summer feeding program. From there, it’s three weeks in an area WIC (Women, Infants and Children) clinic.
I’ve been having the “light at the end of the tunnel” feeling for some months now, but the closer I get to the end, the more I look forward to taking my life back. I miss cooking, and gardening, and daytripping, and reading for fun. That said, I continue to learn something new every day of my internship, and I’m a pretty big fan of learning new things.
I will probably be taking a blogging break this week (that’s what usually happens every time my weekly routine gets upended, only I usually delude myself about it). I have a deadline for my next On Nutrition column, and I’m planning to write a thoughtful post about the current fish oil brouhaha, which requires reading the actual research article that purports to establish a link between fish oil and prostate cancer, as well as other recent research that might support or refute those findings. I think it’s safe to say that most, if not all, of the media reports on the matter last week were not based on that level of inquisition.
Have a great week!
