There is an increasing awareness that the diets people consume contribute to the quality of their life. Studies have shown that people’s susceptibility to chronic disease is influenced by their diet. Dietary-influenced chronic disease is not only observed in affluent communities, but is increasingly seen in those that are economically compromised. Located in the Bronx, Lehman College is uniquely placed to assist in educating interns to become competent entry-level dietitians in order to develop approaches to support the community in moving toward dietary change to optimize health.
Our 2018-2019 Dietetic Internship Class represents students from Lehman College, Columbia University, Hunter College, Johnson and Wales University, NYU, Penn State, and The University of Vermont.
