Celebrate Registered Dietitian Day

March 14, 2012 marks the fifth annual Registered Dietitian Day, reminding everyone that a registered dietitian is the best source of practical, affordable and credible food and nutrition information. "As the nation's food and nutrition experts, registered dietitians are committed to improving the health of their patients and community." Registered Dietitian Day commemorates the dedication of Registered Dietitians as advocates in advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world. 

UAB students, faculty, alums and preceptors (from both Birmingham on and off campus sites) are invited to continue celebrating National Nutrition Month by joining the Department of Nutrition Sciences for an "RD Day" event. 

The reception will be held on Wednesday March 14, 2012 from 2-4pm in the first floor lobby of the Susan Mott Webb Building at UAB.
