2020 Student Scholarship Recipient

My name is Laura Snader, and I am a senior nutrition and dietetics student at Messiah College. In the past year, I worked as a nutrition educator in the after-school program at the Salvation Army in Harrisburg. I taught nutrition and cooking lessons to kids in grades K-6. Additionally, I was part of a group researching intuitive eating on my college campus. Through this project of surveying students, I found that I am passionate about behavioral health nutrition. I am interested to see how my community nutrition work, intuitive eating research, and final year of undergraduate classes shape my future career goals. I am excited to start my senior year, and I am thankful for this scholarship to help me reach my goal of becoming a Registered Dietitian.
