The core curriculum at Ashland has absolutely benefited my future as a professional in the dietetics field. I would like to work with groups of people, increasing education about healthy eating and using food as a preventative form of medicine. Core classes that I have taken in social work and religion have taught me about different cultures and have helped me grow in my understanding of different socioeconomic situations. I feel that I will be successful no matter what type of client I am working with in the future because of the Core classes that I have taken at Ashland.
