Dietetics students learn and serve in Ghana
2018 Mar 15
On a service-learning trip to Ghana, five SUNY Oneonta students and their professor, Assistant Professor of Nutrition and Dietetics Janet Antwi, collaborated with dietetics faculty and students at the University of Ghana to conduct nutrition assessments and teach children in an area elementary school about health and nutrition using games, activities and visual aids. Students also completed a clinical experience in the capital city of Accra, observing and evaluating clients at the Diet Therapy Unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. They were able to put into practice knowledge and skills from their Nutrition Assessment and Community Nutrition courses.
