I provide professional supervision of dietetic interns and students in nutrition practicums. In addition, I offer seminars to students and faculty on nutrition topics, and the logistics of running a private practice.
For the past 11 years I have been the Nutrition Specialist for the Boston Ballet School. This includes individual appointments and professional development lectures for students, parents and faculty.
My involvement with these schools includes individual appointments and professional development lectures on nutrition for dance students and teachers.
An important part of my community outreach is lecturing on nutrition topics and exploring how food and our relationship with food can interfere with, or enhance our lives. I meet with students, teachers and parents at schools in Boston and our greater Boston communities. I volunteer my time to support the nutrition education of our students.
I participate in educational programs with primary care providers and their staff to share information and collaborate in caring for the nutrition needs of our patients.
“Jan Hangen was highly recommended to us by our pediatrician. She inspired our daughter with her calm, insightful, humorous and compassionate approach. She provided us with incredible insight into the nutritional benefits of various foods. She also helped us understand the true calorie requirements for maintaining a healthy weight in an active and athletic teenager. “
