WHAT IS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN NUTRITIONIST?

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is a food and nutrition expert who takes the science of nutrition and puts it into healthy living solutions for you. They are certified by the Accreditation Counsel for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics while continuing their education. The majority of RDNs work in hospitals and other health-care facilities. Some RDNs work in academia, research, or community settings like the YMCA!

WHAT CAN AN RDN DO FOR YOU?
