Nutrition News

About the Author:

Danielle Masland started this newsletter last year but has since graduated and is working hard at her dietetic internship to become a Registered Dietitian (RD, LDN). I loved the idea of this newsletter, so I’m grateful to be taking over this year as ARAMARK’s nutrition intern at WCU. I’m in my last year here and am looking forward to becoming a Registered Dietitian as well. Please email me with any nutrition-related questions and suggestions for this newsletter. I’ll try my best to incorporate them into the future newsletters. Check out Nutrition 101 on the bulletin by Side Cafe. Thanks for reading!
