Parsons to present at Gold Humanism Honor Society Well-Being Workshop Series April 10
Kayla Parsons, registered dietitian nutritionist, a second-year Ph.D. student at the University of Maine, and Graduate Assistant on UMaine School of Nursing’s WellNurse research study, was invited to participate in the national Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) Well-Being Workshop Series on April 10 at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Parson’s workshop, “Eat Well to Test Well,” is designed to mimic a cooking show, ideally with five groups of three, each group working together to create delicious, healthy and accessible recipes. It was initially developed for nursing students to help improve diet quality and nutrition knowledge through a gamified cooking-based workshop, leading to improved academic success and other health behaviors. The workshop was modified to expand support for students studying in the field of health sciences.
The workshop will be held in person at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine’s St. Francis Room at 5:30-6:40pm ET. The 2023 GHHS Well-being Workshops are all free and open to all healthcare professionals and students. For questions, reach out to Louisa Tvito at email@example.com.
