In March 2020, the entire world changed and we all began an experience that no one saw coming -- a worldwide pandemic. The dietetics faculty at Marshall University immediately began considering how this would impact our students' education and financial situation, along with the social and emotional impact this would have on everyone. The faculty at Marshall changed program delivery to accommodate changes brought forth by COVID to provide exceptional learning opportunities for undergraduate students and dietetic interns, both virtually and face-to-face. Join us to learn about methods to implement in dietetics programs, including relevant internship rotations for both on-site and distance interns, adjustments to food laboratory courses, and how we can work together to benefit our profession during this time. With everyone making changes related to the current pandemic, this information is relevant to educators in higher education, as well as preceptors and future employers of these students.
