NDC Meeting: April 20, 2016 Crystal Stone:
NDC this week hosted Crystal Stone, a Registered Dietitian from Providence’s Elder Place program in Portland. Crystal shared information about how her experience through the Dietetics program at Oregon State, her internship and working at different hospitals has helped her discover what she loves most about being a Dietitian and what students should know about what to expect for internships and the RD exam. Crystal took her internship at OHSU which she noted as being very progressive and an amazing place to learn and gain experience. Crystal also noted that one of the benefits of working at Providence under the PACE program, is being able to provide comprehensive and long-term care for the patients. She works closely with patients’ pharmacists, nurses and other primary care providers.
