Graduation and Beyond!

May 22nd marked the Tufts graduation ceremony.  I salute my colleagues at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy (holla for my Nut Comm class!), and I have a special tribute to the Tufts dietetic interns.   
Tufts Dietetic Interns, Class of 2011
Ladies, working with you these past two years has been an honor.  
Registered Dietitian and MS...We did it! 
DI Orientation, August 2009
Alanna.  All elegance and poise.  Your fortitude and strength has inspired me.  I appreciate your dedication to do all things well.
Adrienne.  My sunshine friend!  Always ready to greet with a smile, and help me put things into perspective.  You think beyond dietetics, and I like this.  Let's meet in Austin!  
Nathalia.  Natural leader, fantastic MSDA president, and ever ready to provide comic relief.  "We R Who We R"-Whenever I hear this, I'll bust a move for our song.  Go Nat Attack!
Lauren.  My very first Boston acquaintance; thank you for subletting your Brookline room, and welcoming me to the city!  Good luck in St. Louis!
Inpatient rotations, August 2010
Renee.  Hey DJ, your enthusiasm is contagious!  You converted me to PBB sandwiches, and when I'm feeling down I'll remember to recite, "One day at a time, one patient at a time, for the win."  Thank you!  Sauce on.
Vicky.  My fabulous rotation partner, and "twin"!  Ah, such memories together: Korean bbq at Koreana, red bean buns from Chinatown, instant coffee in dialysis clinic, Whole Foods lunches at MGH.  Thankful for you.  Rooting for you in California!
Erin.  Succinct, sassy, and never too flustered.  Love it.  Long live your grape salad and chocolate chip cookies!
Nikita.  This classy gal is truly the Queen of Spice (please open an Indian restaurant someday!).  Roomie, you are a kindred spirit.  I miss you already.
What's Next?  Belgium!
Yup, I'll be heading to Brussels from June through August for a summer internship at the European Union Food Information Council (EUFIC).  EUFIC is a non-profit organization that provides nutrition and food safety information to media, industry, educators, and health professionals.  This is my first taste of Europe!  I'm eager to continue this unique opportunity, which was trail-blazed last summer by fellow Tufts colleague Kelly Dumke.

In September I'll return to Boston for one last semester of grad school.  Turns out I'm not officially graduated yet. *wink*  But wanted to walk with my class nonetheless!

Stay tuned this summer for updates and pictures.
Cheers!
Rachel

Haѵе you еver thought about іncluding a lіttle bit more than јust your articles?
I mean, what yοu say is important and everything. Howeveг јust imagine іf you added some great ѵisuals oг video
clips to give your ρosts more, "pop"! Υouг contеnt іs excellent
but wіth pics and vіdeoѕ, thiѕ website could undеnіably be
onе of the very bеѕt in its niche.

Fantastic blog!
