Eat Well with Janel + National RD Day

By Elizabeth Jarrard, Dietetics Student, Sargent College


March is National Nutrition Month and March 9th is National Registered Dietitian Day, and the team of RDs here at the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center would love to give you the 411 on what RDs do! Registered Dietitians are the food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. In order to become a RD you have to have degree in nutrition (often called dietetics) from an accredited colleges or universities, complete an internship and pass an national examination. Registered Dietitians work throughout the community in hospitals, schools, public health clinics, nursing homes, fitness centers, food management, food industry, universities, research and private practice, using their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes. Here at the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center we have five RDs who work counseling students, faculty and staff, teaching courses, and working with Dining Services on the Sargent Choice Program. You can schedule an appointment here or if you are not at BU find a RD near you!
