You are required to interview a person who works in the food industry and write a written report. First call the individual to request an interview and set a time for an appointment. Do not interview someone who has already been interviewed by another student in this course. Do not interview a clinical dietitian. You may, however, interview a dietitian who holds an administrative position as a director or assistant director of a school foodservice or healthcare facility. You may choose to interview one of the supervisors from your lab site. However, this interview does NOT count as part of your four required hours of lab time.
