Previously, I was in my food service management and patient services rotation at Howard University Hospital. One of my favorite things I did was the Retail and Marketing Event. In this case, I decided to go with a concept that reflected my Colombian culture. The event was called Arepas! and it consisted of serving arepas, which are fluffy cornmeal pancakes with different toppings and proteins, including Carne desmechada (shredded beef), chicken, beans, coconut rice, sweet plantains, creamy lime coleslaw, and guacamole.
So far, I love being a Sodexo dietetic intern! I look forward to starting my long-term community rotation in December and my clinical rotations at MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center in January!
