Each fall, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors FNCE (Food & Nutrition Conference Expo), the world’s largest meeting of food and nutrition experts — more than 10,000 registered dietitian nutritionists, nutrition science researchers, policy makers, health-care providers and industry leaders attend the annual meeting — and address key issues affecting the health of all Americans. This year the conference is in Chicago (!!!) and we are so excited to network, attend panels, eat good food, and learn about the new research in the field.
With FNCE right around the corner, we thought it would be great to do a podcast episode that highlights why being a registered dietitian (RD) is so fresh. In this episode we’ll be covering:
- How to become an RD
- Where RD’s work/what RD’s do
- The pros & cons
- The training involved
- The difference between a dietitian and nutritionist
- And much, much more!
- Check out this post for an in-depth guide (& resources) for becoming an RD!
