Today is RD (Registered Dietitian Day)! It is part of National Nutrition Month So if you are one, happy day to you and if you know one… happy day to them! I have been an RD for less than a year… passed the test, am legit, but have not found a job yet… but I guess I can celebrate today as well even tho I am “unemployed”! 🙂
Here is a little tidbit about RDs from the American Dietetic Association. I have been asked a lot… “What does an RD do?”…. “Where can you get a job?”… etc. So this is helpful in answering some of those questions if you do not know and there are more links there to find out more. RDs are found in many communities and sometimes in places you would not expect… food management, hospitals, schools, public health clinics, nursing homes, fitness centers, food industry, universities, research and private practice and more. Very generally, a dietitian is someone who is an advocate for nutrition/health and has an interest in the nutritional status and well-being of People. I know this is true for me even though I still have so much to learn!
Hope you are having a wonderful day today!
