My name is Breonna Rawson and I am one of the new nutrition interns working with Kathryn Szklany, Registered Dietitian, this semester! I am excited to have the opportunity to share my passion about food and nutrition to my fellow classmates, and to get a closer look into the responsibilities of an on-campus registered dietitian. Currently, I am majoring in Biology and have a minor in Nutrition. I plan on completing a masters degree in Nutrition Science at Syracuse University to become an RD, once I have finished my BA at SUNY Oswego.
I do not live on campus, but I have been to the dining halls several times and was surprised by many of the healthy choices that were available despite my earlier suspicions. Being a commuter, I often find it difficult to set aside time at home where I can shop for and cook my own healthy meals. I hope to discuss with others the issues that college students face when trying to make healthy choices, and maybe discover other ways to help students maintain a well-rounded diet even amidst a stressful schedule and tight budget!
