Nutrition Resource Project has open house (4/28/97)

Educators in Texas A&M University-Kingsville's human sciences department held an open house in March to mark the opening of their Nutrition Resource Project. The project is designed to promote nutrition education among students and health-care professionals in the Coastal Bend.

The project has provided desktop computers, instructional software and educational resources that are used in the university's dietetics internship program, which is supported by the South Texas/Border Region Health Education Initiative, a special legislative project in health-care education. Internship is one of the steps to becoming a registered dietitian.

The project has developed a mission statement and has added an advisory committee of educators and allied health professionals from the region, said Gloria Fernandez-Van Zante, MS, RD, program coordinator.
