Community.

We provide a community for students, professionals and educators dedicated to increasing ethnic and racial diversity in the field of nutrition and dietetics.

Meanwhile, patients and clients are becoming more diverse.

An ethnically and culturally diverse group of nutrition students will lead to a diverse group of RDNs, creating a profession that can draw on the strengths of all segments of society. Students of color need mentors and resources to navigate the RDN education pathway. RDNs working as educators and dietetic internship directors need resources to attract, educate and train people of color.
