First International Nutritionist/Dietitian (FIND) Fellowship for Study in the USA
  • The First International Nutritionist/Dietitian (FIND) Fellowship for Study in the USA is given to assist a foreign national who is pursuing postgraduate work in the USA and has a clearly articulated plan to return to their country. This year’s recipient was Miyoung Kim, MSC from South Korea who is currently enrolled in the coordinated program at a master’s level in nutrition at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Upon completing her program in Chicago and returning to South Korea her goal is to become a professor in a clinical dietetics program. She wants to make a contribution to the development of younger dietitians by combining her knowledge and experience that she learned in the United States with her experience of clinical nutrition in South Korea.   Kim said about receiving the award, “This will provide me with a great foothold to reach my goals. I hope to one day contribute to the Korean Dietetic Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, exchanging programs or opening international seminars in South Korea for the Korean dietitians”.
