Hi, I'm Julia Robinson and I'm currently in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics at Eastern Michigan University, and will graduate in April 2019. I love women's health and prenatal nutrition. My goal is to become a Certified Lactation Specialist, open my own private practice, and become a preceptor some day!
Hi, I'm Lauren Johnson. As a dietetic senior in the DPD at Western Michigan University, I bring the perspective of dietetic students who go on to apply for dietetic internships. During my time at WMU, I have been an active member of the MI Academy, including attending conferences, being a member of the Licensure Task Force and a student Board member. When I become a registered dietitian, I hope to be involved in nutrition policy and work with underserved populations.

Students are always looking for opportunities to showcase their talents and learn more about the variety that the nutrition and dietetics field has to offer. You’re in luck, because many dietitians have projects and programs that they need student volunteers to help them with!
If you are a dietitian or nutrition professional looking for assistance on a project or program you're working on, or if you'd like to mentor a student, you can have your contact information posted here.
Students, check back often for vounteer opportunities in your area.
