Welcome back to school! I hope all of you had a wonderful summer.
My name is Kaylee O'Hare and I am the new Student Liaison for the Arkansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I am looking forward to serving you guys this year! I hope to get to know more students in our field, so don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, ideas, or just to say hi! I think it would be great if we can strengthen the community of nutrition students in the state of Arkansas. We will end up working together one day!
I am about to start my senior year of college at the University of Central Arkansas. I cannot believe how quickly the past few years have gone by! I have been blessed with wonderful professors, my classes have been great, I have learned so much, and have met so many amazing people. I really want to encourage you guys to start out strong this semester. It always helps to try and stay on top of everything from the beginning so you are not scrambling around at the end of the semester. Right now is also a great time to look for ways to get involved on campus. Be sure to join the Student Dietetic Association at your school, if you haven’t already done so.
Now is also a great time to become a member of the Arkansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. There are so many resources available to you through the academy. As members, we receive newsletters with nutrition information and a nutrition magazine that help us stay up to date on everything in our field of study. We also have access to journal articles that are great resources to use when writing papers and doing research. Being a member is also a good way to meet other people in the field of dietetics.
Until next time,
