LAHIDAN Mentorship Program
Julie Plasencia - past Mentorship Program Chair with mentee
The LAHIDAN Mentorship Program is designed to help students and new nutrition professionals grow and develop professional qualities to help them succeed in their career. Mentoring includes topics such as: career guidance, support on how to enhance eligibility into Dietetic Internship programs, time management, networking, job search, and sharing the mentor’s own experiences. Mentoring is a great way for nutrition professionals to give back to the profession, and it provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about the profession from a LAHIDAN member’s perspective.
Do you have experience you are willing to share? Do you have an interest in helping “young” nutrition professionals or students grow in the nutrition and dietetics profession?
If you answered yes, we would like you to consider becoming a mentor for the current membership year. Mentors develop a professional relationship with mentees via electronic, phone, or face-to-face contact which involves a small monthly time commitment.
Are you a student member of LAHIDAN or new to the nutrition and dietetics profession? Would you like to be mentored by a more experienced LAHIDAN member?
If you answered yes, join our mentoring program, a mentee-driven program that connects students and newly credentialed LAHIDAN members to more experienced LAHIDAN members.
If you have any further questions about becoming a mentee or a mentor, please contact LAHIDAN@eatright.org.
