Since 2008, the second Wednesday in March has been recognized as National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day. That day is March 10, only 5 days away!
What are you doing for National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day?
I am going to be celebrating the many wonderful RDNs in my life and using the opportunity to evaluate my own eating patterns. But the fun doesn't have to stop there! The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has put together 16 event ideas for National RDN Day -- check them out!
National RDN Day was created to draw attention to the hard work of RDNs as they help people advance their nutrition status, indispensably providing a range of nutrition services. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics goes into much more detail in their post Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day.
It has been a hard, crazy year since the last National RDN Day. I am so glad that you are still reading and emailing and being there through these times. Hooray for health educators, especially RDNs, and I can't wait to keep creating useful resources with and for you.
