Registered Dietitian Day 2023

So glad that this day is here! It is Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day!

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrates Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day on Wednesday, March 8, 2023. As the nation's food and nutrition experts, registered dietitian nutritionists are committed to improving the health of their patients, clients and communities.

First celebrated in 2008, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day commemorates the dedication of RDNs as advocates for advancing the nutrition status of Americans and people around the world.
