Our dietitians are not only experts in nutrition science, but also in communication techniques and behavioral change strategies. They will explain the science of nutrition to you in simple ways and take your unique nutrition needs into account when providing nutrition counseling. Together with you, our dietitians will create a personal plan, helping you improve your health and lifestyle by making lasting dietary changes.
Licensed registered dietitians (RDN) are the only healthcare professional trained in nutrition science. To become a dietitian, one must take nutrition science classes or complete their Masters program and complete a supervised clinical dietetic internship, accredited by ACEND.
