In her teaching role, dietetic education holds strong interest for Dr. Forsythe who has gone through several accreditation cycles with the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetic Education. As director of the Dietetic Internship, she has developed outcomes assessment strategies for the education of dietetic interns, training modules for dietetic preceptors, and distance learning on ‘Leadership and Evaluation’ for interns in remote supervised practice sites.
Hazel Forsythe considers service learning an important tool in community nutrition. She creates opportunities to practice with her students and guide them on projects that provide community nutrition services to populations who would not otherwise participate in preventive community health.
