Hi everyone. I am currently a recent graduate with a bachelors of science in public health. I absolutely love public health and the idea of prevention. With that said, I found two masters coordinated programs nearby me. However, one is an MS and the other is an MPH. I am really torn. They are both the same price, so cost isn't a factor. The MPH program is about 1 hour and 15 minutes of a commute

Hi, had a question I thought some RDs could weigh in on.

I've seen a lot of supplements recently with collagen protein in them, some with gelatin, some with hydrolyzed collagen, and some with enzyme-predigested collagen.

Some have added amino acids to the predigested collagen - cysteine, histidine, methionine, threonine, tryptophan.

At some point in my career I'd like to become an educator. I'm not sure what I should be doing to set myself up for success or where I should start looking for experiences to add to my resume in that area. I would love any guidance or suggestions :) Thank you!

I never really paid attention, but the other day I happen to look at the nutritional value and it said .5mg of protein per serving!
I was shocked. Beans are usually a good sorce of protein. I then tried looking it up and some sites mention how its such a good source of lean protein, while others concur with the virtually no protein.

anyone know why such a descrepensy and which is right?

I'm currently a state employee at a local WIC clinic & have been working for WIC as an RD for almost 1 yr. I'm looking into different options of expanding my experience/knowledge base so I've been researching information on joining the military as a reservist. However, there's so much information & links to different sites on the military websites that it's a bit overwhelming.
