"I led an event at our local elementary school about healthy eating habits. My goal was to encourage better choices at the lunch hour. The kids participated in the workshop and had a blast. My work in coordinating with the school administration and lunch staff went a long way to making the entire event a success among the students."
"This past summer, while I was a senior in college in my program, I had a booth at our local city picnic. I brought information about healthy living and healthy choices that were engaging to a general audience. While working in the booth, I engaged people in conversation and I consider it a success because I had a lot of traffic past my booth as well as questions."
"In my time working for a private healthcare organization, one of my most successful events that I coordinated was a booth at a heart health conference at a nearby university. In planning for the event and looking to stand out from the rest of the crowd, I decided to theme our booth in the effects of smoking on heart health in hopes that I could impact attendees that were tobacco users to quit. Looking to have some shock effect on people stopping by, I had a running DVD with images of hearts that were impacted by cardiovascular diseases and heart attacks caused by smoking. At the event, I had several people exclaim to me how impactful my booth was."
