Well known as the experts in food and nutrition, registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) are the only medical professional trained and credentialed to provide science-based diet education to improve health and prevent disease. Our team of RDNs specialize in diabetes diet education, weight management, and identifying and treating food sensitivities. While every registered dietitian is also a nutritionist, not every nutritionist is a dietitian.
