The program at Benedictine is a unique one. The internship is 15 months in length and combined with a Masters degrees of Science and Nutrition & Wellness (MSNW). This is a very unique credential as much of the emphasis of the program is on wellness, and community health, as opposed to a rigid set of guidelines that may or may not define health.
The interns do a lot of work in the community, either directly, as a part of the rotation, or to continue to promote health & wellness to those with lower income. Also to those who are able to live comfortably. The interns get a cornucopia of experience from children to the elderly, different socioeconomic statuses, and different ethnicities.
Please stay tuned was the interns make their blogging debut, to further expand their skills in social media, and discussing important issues in health, fitness, nutrition, and overall well-being.
