What is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?

Registered dietitian nutritionists are food and nutrition experts who translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. They are trained in the use of nutrition to prevent and control disease. The initials RD or RDN after your nutritionist’s name indicate your practitioner has completed an accredited four-year educational program as well as the required service hours of supervised practice. They stay up-to-date by completing continuing professional education requirements.
