Today I went to the Corburn place with a nutrition health educator. The
Corburn place is for families who need have been abused and need help getting
back on their feet. We played a game with the kids and let them try a green
smoothie. All of the kids liked the smoothie and seemed like they had a lot of fun.
For the rest of the day I worked on BSU assignments and an in-service project for
MCHD.

Today I had a meeting for FIMR (fetal immortality review). We discussed why
babies in Marion County are dying and what can we do to prevent that. We reviewed
3 different cases of infant deaths. It was very sad and eye opening. For the rest of
the day, I worked at WIC. I got to observe a class and three one on one counseling
sessions.

Today I watched a webinar about posting food pictures on social media. It was
very interesting and I learned about how to post healthy food pictures that look the
most appealing and appetizing. The webinar was presented by an RD. I then
presented a powerpoint about fruits and vegetables to a group of women called Fit
for the Father. They workout in a church and then I presented to them women
about cooking with fruits and vegetables. I provided them with a sample of a fruit
and veggie salad recipe.

Today I had a meeting for Maternal Child Health. Staff from all different areas
of MCHD come together and discuss different topics. There was a speaker about
ZIKA and what Marion County is doing to prevent it from spreading. There was a
speaker about Moms Helpline and a speaker about the MCHD twitter. Each program
also updated the group with things going on. I liked seeing how different
departments can come together and help each other. After the meeting, I finished
my board about World Breastfeeding Week. I worked on Ball State projects and
projects for MCHD.
