  2. WICNS exploring possible part-time PDI: The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Program for Dietetic Interns (PDI) is exploring the interest in, and feasibility of, providing the PDI as a part-time option for LWP nutritionists. We would like input from your agency’s perspective as to how a part-time program may possibly affect your program operations if your nutritionist is in the program, as well as input from the nutritionist’s perspective. Please provide your thoughts on the following questions by December 31, 2006. If you have questions regarding this questionnaire, please contact Vicki Strickland at Vicki.Strickland@health.mo.gov or 800-392-8209.
