Spotlight on Food and Nutrition
WIC Nutritionist, Massachusetts General Hospital
"I cannot say enough about the dedication of the FSU nutrition faculty to prepare me for my job and life. Besides nutrition and foods, they taught me time management, perseverance, and critical thinking skills. I am now confident in my abilities to tackle any nutrition career path I choose. They were my source of encouragement when I thought I wouldn't make it to graduation."
Sports Dietitian, Minnesota Twins Academy
"Upon graduation with a major in Food and Nutrition, and concentration in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics, I felt confident and prepared for launching my professional career as a Registered Dietitian. Within five years I was able to open four new and profitable lines of business with national and world-wide food service providers, launch my own private practice and become a sports dietitian for a major league baseball team."
Nutrition Director, Foxboro YMCA
“Framingham State prepared me for a smooth transition from school to work by providing me with the communication and leadership skills needed to succeed in my career. Framingham state also set me up with an internship at the YMCA, which allowed me to translate that into a career path for myself. I was able to apply what I learned at Framingham State by implementing successful healthy lifestyle programs for our members.”
