Dietitians in Health Care Communities
We are a group of Registered Dietitians, Diet Technicians, and other Food and Nutrition professionals who provide consultation in senior health and housing communities. Our group has seasoned dietitians and new RDs to the area and to the profession.
We have meetings twice a year. Anyone is welcome to join and/or attend our meetings.
The meetings consist of half-day trainings with speakers ranging from physicians, dietitians, and health care and industry professionals. The topics are focused on the older adult/geriatric resident, as this is our target population. The meetings are an excellent way to network. RDs are very willing to share their expertise and experience with the group.
