April is National Preceptor Month, Preceptors make a difference in the lives of students who are learning to become registered dietitian nutritionists or dietetic technicians, registered by acting as mentors and training the dietetic professionals of the future. Our Foundation would like to take this opportunity to recognize the 2020 Nutrition and Dietetic Educators and Preceptors (NDEP) Preceptor Scholarship Recipient, Lacie Peterson, MS, RDN, BCADM, CDCES, FADCES, FAND.
This scholarship is funded by NDEP and awarded annually through our Foundation to a dietetic educator who is a member of NDEP and pursuing a docturate in dietetics. Lacie is currently enrolled at the University of Utah, pursuing a Ph.D. in Nutrition and Integrative Physiology.
NDEP values the critical role Preceptors play in shaping the future of our profession and works with our Foundation to provide this scholarship opportunity. We are proud to partner with NDEP and its member Preceptors who are making such a difference through their teaching, mentoring, and leadership.
