Today I had the opportunity to present a 15-minute oral presentation at the 22nd Annual Antonio Palladino Memorial Lecture & Resident Research Symposium that was put on by West Virginia University’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The other presenters at this event were all physicians who were in the process of completing their residencies. This event was held in the Health Science Center in the Fukishima Auditorium and approximately 50 physicians, residents, and other health care providers attended this event .
As part of my masters plan of study I was required to present a 45-minute presentation for a graduate-level nutrition seminar course (ANNU 696). The audience consisted of master’s students and professors from the Animal & Nutritional Sciences Department. Below, is the presentation that I created and delivered!

It is crazy to think that my rotation is already wrapping up! I have learned so much information and practical information that will help me to succeed as a dietitian and a health professional. As a final evaluation of my performance as a dietetic intern I was responsible for identifying a patient to follow for a case study. After conducting multiple nutrition assessments on my patient for the past few weeks I complied the information I learned into a presentation that I presented to all of the registered dietitians – about 10 of them.
