ARAMARK Dietetic Internship – Kansas City
The ARAMARK Dietetic Internship program located in Kansas City, MO provides interns
the opportunity to obtain over 1200 hours of experience in clinical, management, and
community dietetics. The concentration area of Emerging Trends in Dietetics allows
interns to become familiar with current trends within the dietetics profession and
identify, implement, and evaluate a project focused on a trend of interest. The Kansas
City program participates in the Healthy Schools Partnership (HSP) program, a
collaborative project between the American Council for Fitness and Nutrition, American
Dietetic Association Foundation, and PE4life. HSP is an innovative program focused on
targeting childhood obesity which integrates nutrition education and physical education
to encourage children to be more active and consume a more nutritious diet.
