Student Blog

We are excited to announce the launch of the BHN Student Blog, which is a place for students to seek and share advice, thoughts, and feelings on an assortment of topics, such as internships, programs, practice specialties, and much more. Each and every post is for students, by students.

Each month, we take a handful of students and publish their posts on our blog site. This is a great opportunity to:

1) Share your knowledge with other student members

2) Get plenty of writing practice for future publications

3) Amp up your resume for future positions or internships

Check out the link below to see this month’s posts about finding internships that are a good fit for you:

 We are looking for authors to write ~500 words about their past/present/future programs and how the program impacted their career direction and choices, as well as any other information future students may want to know when starting a new program. The title of each post will be the program itself and the school that hosts it (e.g. Nutritional Sciences at San Jose State University). For all submissions, please email them to our Student Liaison Kathleen Aguzzi.  Please include a short author bio with your submission (picture is optional).

If you have any suggestions for future topics to be covered on the blog, tweet at us using the hashtag #BHNstudents (@BHNDPG), or email them to Nicole Vencil, our Student Blog Manager.
