Community Partnership Involving Dietetic Interns: A Public Health Nutrition Experience


Partnership is one of the core functions in public health practice. The partnership described in this article arose from a joint commitment of bringing community nutrition and chronic disease prevention work into a community agency, the Patch Project1 (Hull Child and Family Services), whose nutrition programming was focused on emergency food access. This article describes what we did and provides perspectives of different partners including staff of the Patch Project, the University of Alberta Integrated Dietetic Internship Program (UA-IDIP), and Health Agency registered dietitian (RD) preceptors.

What We Did

We took an asset-based approach and conducted an inventory of current community based programming focused on nutrition. The Patch Project advised on the program areas of most relevance to the populations they served. Dietetic interns were key participants in this initial work. During their placements with health agencies they researched the unique needs of the population that the Patch Project served. The work was primarily health agency driven and the outputs included adaptations to the format and delivery of existing resources to address the needs of diverse populations.

The partners had shared values, goals and expectations around accessibility and appropriateness of existing programs and seeking opportunities to model healthy eating in non-health agency programming, rather than seeking initiative funding and/or creating new/temporary resources with limited sustainability. All partners concurred that the goals could be achieved by placing an intern directly with the Patch Project thus optimizing use of preceptors’ areas of expertise while providing dietetic interns with practical experiences in community nutrition work with at-risk populations. The health agency RDs mentored the intern in developing community and public health nutrition competencies including how to appropriately utilize nutrition standards, approaches and resources in working with at-risk populations.

The foundational work spent on building the partnership and the ongoing evaluation led to a decision to pilot a 12-week intern placement at the community agency. Additional components to the established internship placement process were developed including a community agency screening of the intern, intern orientation binder, and scheduled opportunities for partner communication (e.g., weekly meetings, template for weekly intern reflection reports).

Participants’ Reflections

Patch Project, Hull Child and Family Services:

We experienced more nutrition modelling, education, and skill building in our agency programming that clearly stimulated an interest in healthy eating. Nutrition was introduced in practical ways within achievable limits. A challenge is how to manage and sustain the ideas/ programming after the placement ended. Our goal is to integrate nutrition considerations into our practice.

Internship Coordinator (UA –IDIP):

This placement was in a non-traditional setting and was a way to offer hands-on experience for interns in community nutrition. Adding new (non-traditional) placements to the internship increases the number of meaningful placements available to interns and allows them to gain experience in nutrition education, needs assessment, program planning, implementation and evaluation.This particular placement also provided learning opportunities related to food insecurity.

Dietetic Intern (UA –IDIP):
Since I was directly immersed within a low-income, multicultural community during this placement, I was able to appreciate the work that goes into a community development project. I have always been interested in community nutrition and now I have had the opportunity to work on a community garden and to develop a community nutrition program.

Health Agency RDs – Alberta Health Services
(Nutrition Services, Population and Public Health);

Healthy Babies Network, Catholic Family Services:

Placing a dietetic intern in a community agency allowed for a person with nutrition expertise to participate in hands-on work. The shared responsibility of preceptorship and combined perspectives of Dietitians in public health and community nutrition broadened the scope of practice for the intern. This successful pilot placement is seen as a model that can support community level work. Because of the Patch Project’s commitment to health promotion we have been able to consult with them for a community perspective on other initiatives.


The internship placement described in this article is one example of the important role of partnerships in public health nutrition work. We believe that an open and transparent partnership, with common values and goals, where all partnership work is valued and where challenges are addressed from an asset-based approach has been central to the successful outcomes.

1 The Patch Project is a grassroots, community based program serving families that live in subsidized housing units located in high needs communities.

– Thank you to all partners in supporting this experience: Patch Project (David Wright, Christina Maes, Twyla Mudry, Teresa Rumdit, Stacey McRae, Claire Jackson); UA-IDIP (Carrie Mullin-Innes); UA-IDIP intern (Sandra Paquette); Alberta Health Services (Kathy Cunningham); Healthy Babies Network (Brinda Rao).

Family Life Insurance - MLife said...

Family life insurance, as the name implies, provides coverage for the couple, of all types. In this case, the children will be even more protected, since they know that, in case something happens to one of their parents, they will have the necessary resources to avoid difficulties. The possible coverage of family insurance varies according to the needs of the contractor.

With life insurance for family members, the policy is organized exactly with the focus on protecting all the recipients, whoever they are, and which ones you choose. This makes it the best option for those who want to guarantee security and welcome to those you love, no matter what.

The death of one parent (or both parents) is always a personal catastrophe. But with the help of life insurance for parents, at least the family's financial existence is not threatened. You have provided sufficient protective padding in advance.

Pada tahun-tahun awal jumlah pemain dalam sebuah tim bervariasi sesuai dengan jumlah di kelas dan ukuran area bermain. Pada tahun 1894 tim mulai bermain dengan lima sisi ketika area bermain kurang dari 1.800 kaki persegi (167,2 meter persegi); jumlahnya naik menjadi tujuh ketika gimnasium berukuran 1.800 sampai 3.600 kaki persegi.

Pada tahun 1895 jumlahnya kadang-kadang ditetapkan menjadi lima dengan persetujuan bersama; aturan menetapkan lima pemain dua tahun kemudian, dan jumlah ini tetap ada sejak saat itu.

Karena Naismith dan lima pemain aslinya adalah orang Kanada, tidak mengherankan jika Kanada adalah negara pertama di luar Amerika Serikat yang memainkan permainan tersebut. Bola basket diperkenalkan di Perancis pada tahun 1893, di Inggris pada tahun 1894, di Australia, Cina, dan India segera sesudahnya, dan di Jepang pada tahun 1900 sebagai salah satu Sejarah Permainan Olahraga Basket.

A funeral repast is a meal that usually takes place after a funeral and during which all the relatives of the deceased and the mourning men and women gather for a prayer so that the soul of the deceased can rest in peace. or to eat together and share the sadness engendered by the loss.

The funeral feast is a “banquet” to which guests are invited after the funeral; its meaning may vary. In ancient times, the funeral feast was used to wish the soul of the deceased the best so that it could find its bliss in eternal life after death.

The celebration was an opportunity for the relatives of the deceased to meet, strengthen their relationships and commemorate the deceased: a prayer was dedicated to him so that he could rest in peace forever.

The concept of community partnerships involving dietetic interns in the context of public health nutrition represents an innovative approach to bridging the gap between academic learning and real-world practical experiences. Such initiatives are vital for fostering a holistic understanding of the multifaceted challenges in public health nutrition. By engaging with local communities, dietetic interns gain valuable insights into cultural, socio-economic, and environmental factors that influence dietary habits and health outcomes. These partnerships not only benefit interns in developing their clinical skills but also contribute to the promotion of community well-being through targeted nutrition interventions. Furthermore, they promote collaboration between academic institutions and public health agencies, facilitating a more comprehensive approach to addressing nutrition-related issues.
