Food is something that everyone needs in order to survive. There are certain times in which you need special kinds of food to make sure that you are in the best possible health. In the United States Air Force, it is the job of the Diet Therapy Apprentice to make sure those recovering from wounds or illnesses are given the specialty diet they will need to recover even faster.
What You Will Do
You will work alongside the medical staff to make sure that the patients in the US Air Force Medical treatment centers are given the best possible care. You will help to create menus which will meet the exact nutritional requirements they need. You will even help in the preparation of certain meals to help those airmen in need speed along to recovery as quickly as possible.
Get the Training
As with any other job in the US Air Force, you will undergo training before being put to work in your position. You will go through basic training like all the rest of the enlisted personnel. You will then go through specialty training so that you will understand nutrition and its effect on the human body as it is trying to recover from wounds or illness. Your training will be useful to you while you are in the US Air Force as well as if you decide you would like to re-enter the civilian world.
