Dietitians love food and our curiosity to understand the science behind it drives us. Like all regulated health professionals, we undergo comprehensive and rigorous training, both on the job and in universities. You can find us working everywhere, including in health care, the food industry, education, business, government, and many other places.
We collaborate with our patients, clients, industry and government leaders, and communities to deliver reliable, life-changing advice.
