1.  Completed an accredited baccalaureate program in Nutrition and Dietetics.

2.  Completed a 1200-hour supervised internship

3.  Passed the National Dietetic Exam approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

A Registered Dietitian will provide reliable and objective information, separate facts from fiction/fads and translate the latest scientific findings into information that is easy to understand and use.
