Find a Dietitian Information

Find a Dietitian - what is it all about? 

The Find a Dietitian function of the website brings together dietitians with the people who need nutrition information.  It is a great way for the public or media to find nutrition help; it is a great way for dietitians to share their knowledge and expertise.
