Registered Dietitian

Dietitians help prevent and treat illness by promoting healthy eating habits. They supervise the preparations of food, plan menus and diets for therapeutic treatment, and manage food purchases and dietary personnel. They scientifically evaluate clients' diets and suggest modifications, such as less salt for those with high blood pressure or reduced-calorie and sugar intake for those who are overweight. Dietitians can also use their skills to teach, conduct research, or serve as consultants.
