What is a Registered Dietitian?

Did you know that Dietitian visits are tax deductible and often covered by extended health plans?

A dietitian is a regulated health professional that has completed a Bachelor’s degree specializing in food and nutrition sciences followed by an accredited internship or graduate degree. You can identify a dietitian by the initials RD after their name. This title is protected by law under provincial legislation so that only qualified practitioners who have met these specific education requirements can use the title Dietitian, Registered Dietitian or Registered Nutritionist.

For more information on the regulation of the dietetic profession, please visit The College of Dietitians of Alberta.
