PDA Mentoring Mixer and Fondue Fun

To kick off the year (better late than never!), Jessica (Career Services Chair)  and I (Mentoring Chair) of the Pittsburgh Dietetics Association (PDA) decided to host a networking mixer! This allowed for a comfortable environment where the students and dietitians could get to know eachother. We had a wonderful turnout and lots of fun! We enjoyed tasty not-so-clean treats  (FONDUE Fun!) and played a  "speed mentoring" game to get to know eachother. The fondue and the unexpected dip-Ables were a work project; I had a chance to gather lots of feedback on what actually tastes good together. To my surprise, some favorite combinations included chocolate/pickles, chocolate/ peppers, asparagus/chocolate, and actually almost everything.
