Organization Review

Overall Experience: 
I consider my stay in Minga one of the best experiences in my life. In that town, I met influential professionals as well as people I now consider good friends. During my stay in Minga, I completed a nutrition internship in Coopsaludcom, an organization geared towards providing families with food and nutrition education. I worked hand in hand with the organization's dietitian who taught me so much. She was welcoming and never hesitant to answer questions. At Coopsaludcom I had the liberty to be part of different projects. For example, I organized and directed a workshop for mothers of overweight children. The main focus at this workshop was proper nutrition followed by a question/answer session. Also, I was part of the breast feeding campaign. My job at this campaign was to visit different towns with the organization's dietitians and promote breast feeding along with its benefits. Overall, I earned valuable experiences that I would have never been able to earn in a classroom setting. This internship prepared me for the last two years of my bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology.
