Now, more than ever, New Yorkers need to focus on the value of good nutrition. Increasingly, Dietitians/Nutritionists are gaining recognition as the nutrition experts providing much needed guidance and advice on optimal nutrition, health and well -being. Because of this and the incredible professionals in our field, the scope of practice for every dietetic professional is growing and expanding every day.
