The UTSA Coordinated Program in Dietetics Advisory Board Council officially convened last Fall ‘18 to further the program’s impact in the dietetics field. The council, which meets biannually, is invited to annual events, functions and graduate clinical presentations, which helps the leadership stay informed of the program’s goals and objectives, curriculum, services and activities. The purpose of the council is to also build relationships with their students by staying up to date with their work and providing support.

“We have strong leaders in a variety of nutrition and health sectors that are invested in the success of our dietetic students,” states Dr. Liset Leal Vasquez, who serves as facilitator of the Dietetics Advisory Board Council.

The Dietetics Advisory Board Council’s leadership includes representatives from the Methodist/Methodist Children’s Hospital, Blue Skies of Texas, Nutrition Associates of San Antonio, Dairy MAX, City of San Antonio Department of Human Services Senior Services, HEB Nutrition, Southwest ISD Child Nutrition, UT Health San Antonio School of Nursing, University Health System, The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio- Culinary Health Education for Families (CHEF), Mays Cancer Center, South San ISD Child Nutrition and Abbott Nutrition.

Dr. Vasquez believes that the leadership’s experience is what makes them the perfect candidates for this role. “Many of them serve as preceptors as well as employers of past and recent graduates of the program,” said Dr. Vasquez.

The council plans to provide further support by sharing new developments and giving advice in the dietetics field. They will also assist in the development of new programs to identify the best practice standards.

“We value all our advisory board member’s expertise and are honored to have their support,” said Dr. Vasquez.
