Dietitians are a core public health asset- and one in short supply to boot. We’re trying to do something about that shortage with our new “WIC Track” initiative. We’re partnering with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health Dietetic Internship to offer a “WIC Track” internship. It’s open to any eligible (have completed a Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics) WIC employee that’s worked for at least a year. The competitive process includes an application, a portfolio of prior assessed learning, and an interview.
We’re pleased to announce our four new candidates: Rachel Molina, Mountain Park Health Center; Caitlin Howard, Pima County WIC; Carrie Wright, Pinal County WIC; and Kathryn Baldwin; Adelante Healthcare. They’ll begin their internship in August of 2012.
