Summary of the ENDietS, dietetic students day at the ICDA Conference in Granada/Spain 2016
  • Students of today, dietitians of tomorrow

    The second ENDietS Student Day was held along with the ICD in Granada on the 6th September 2016. The program started with Spanish students presenting their country’s food habits and local specialties and continued with lectures and workshops. Students were given the opportunity to present projects they’ve been a part of and share their internship experiences which was very motivational for their younger colleagues in the audience.  The workshops encouraged students to be creative and work together in small groups. It was interesting to see how each group had a different approach in designing a research plan on food and lifestyle habits of students on international exchange. Furthermore, participants were placed in the shoes of a dietitian facing a real existing obstacle in communication and religious differences during the refugee crisis.

    The program was interrupted by a funny and educational quiz while the day ended making new friends among students in a tapas bar.

    ENDietS continues to provide European and international students with unique experiences, not only in the dietetic field, but also in communication and networking.
