Welcome student volunteers! Volunteering with the LIDA is a wonderful opportunity. Showing that you are actively involved in the nutrition field can be very appealing to other professionals, especially those looking to hire you for a job or accept you into a dietetic internship. Health fairs provide many opportunities for you to get involved and allow you to get a glimpse of what our community members know about nutrition and health. They also provide an opportunity to be creative through development of education materials and interactive, hands-on table displays. For students looking to build their resume for their dietetic internship application, this is an easy, fun way to get started. The LIDA is more than happy to have volunteer dietetic students, and is always open to new, fresh ideas that allow us help change the lives of people in our community.
Do you have an idea of your own? We would love to hear it and help you make your idea a reality. Please contact Jennifer Assael, RD, CDN, LIDA Public Relations Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to volunteer for local health fairs, or for more information on other ways to volunteer with the LIDA.
