Dietitians

Dietitians translate scientific research into practical solutions. They work with you to help you feel your best.

To be sure you are accessing the most qualified nutrition professional, look for the initials RD or PDt (DtP in French) after the health professional’s name or ask - are you a dietitian? Dietitians are university educated with hundreds of supervised, hands-on training in food systems, disease management, population health, communications and counselling.
