Lisa McDowell: Preceptor and Role Model

Lisa McDowell, MS, RD, CNSD, CSSD, has been a preceptor for 16 years. She believes in letting students expand and explore their interest areas and wants them to have ownership of their experiences. Students feel energized when they are with her.

Ms. McDowell's students call her an amazing role model. She is the team dietitian for the Detroit Red Wings and traveled to London to work with Olympic athletes.

A former student comments on her experiences with Ms. McDowell:

Lisa has high expectations and encourages us to work independently utilizing available resources including the Nutrition Care Manual. She started an innovative addition to the St. Joseph Mercy Health System – the Farm at St. Joe's! The produce from the Farm is now used in patient meals, employee cafeteria meals and sold in the lobby of the hospital at a weekly Farm market. This helped me truly tie food with great patient care!

The Academy thanks Lisa McDowell for being a preceptor. Create tomorrow's leaders: Become a preceptor today.
