CFI, Mount Mary work together to develop dietitians of the future

Since 2005, aspiring dietitians at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee have spent their internships at Centers for Independence and its food service department. During their internship, the students learn the roots of everything about food services, including developing menus and nutrition guides. They also learn how to administer the administrative side of the profession, such as setting a budget, inventory control and more.
