Dietitians-Online Slide Presentation:
Quotes by Dietitians Around the World



Dietitians-Online.com is a website dedicated to acknowledging the online contributions of the Registered Dietitian (RD) and the Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD, Australia) by highlighting blogs, websites and social media pages written by dietitians.

The slide presentation, “Quotes by Dietitians” is an ongoing project, usually up-dated weekly. The dietitians are individuals who have a place on the Internet where they educate, write and/or provide services. Each person is a RD or an APD1.

The experience in working with Dietitians-Online has been an amazing journey. I’ve met and discovered dietitians who demonstrate commitment, dedication, creativity, knowledge and excellence in the dietetic and nutrition profession. As I review and learn from the work of my colleagues and observe a new generation of dietitians, I am excited about the future of our profession.  (continued after the slide show)

I remember when I started Dietitians-Online. It was about 5 years ago. I just turned 50 years old and I had worked as a registered dietitian for over 25 years. As I looked back on my career, I knew I wanted to give something back to the American Dietetic Association and my colleagues. They gave me the ability to pursue a profession, I truly love with unlimited opportunities and possibilities.
