Major: Nutrition & Dietetics (Dietetics Option)
Hometown: Bronx, NY
Favorite Class at URI:
NFS 276 because it was the first nutrition class I took that required me to relate what I was learning to the real world. The class exposed me to a variety of food cultures and made me think about many different aspects required when treating patients and/or educating them about nutrition.
Working in Dr. Lofgren’s Lipid Lab since freshman year. There I am exposed to the research aspect of Dietetics. I help the grad students with their ongoing nutrition studies by recruiting participants and preparing samples for biochemical assays, right down to data entry!
