Professional Opportunities

Job shadowing and part-time jobs are some of the ways our students gain real-world experience working in nutrition and health fields. Many of our students gain valuable experience from these organizations focused on nutrition, health and food systems. Students find current opportunities in our weekly DHN Digest.
