As many of you know, I had been studying to take the Registered Dietitian exam. Well, no more! I am officially a dietitian and I couldn’t be happier. What’s important to know about dietitians is that we are legally bound to provide scientific-based nutrition information to the public. What that means is that we are the experts on food. Foodies, as I like to say.
After nine long months in Santa Barbara, I finally graduated from the dietetic internship. A dietetic internship is a postgraduate internship for future dietitians to get real life, hands-on experience in the field. The next and FINAL step towards becoming a Registered Dietitian is to sit for the RD exam.
As you can see, I really like my cake, as do Alan and my sister, Claudia. To see more pictures from my graduation weekend, click the image. OK, time to study… wish me luck!
