Why being a Dietitian of color matters!

Why being a Dietitian of color matters!

Having diversity in dietetics makes all the difference when it comes to someone’s health.  An Asian dietitian understands Asian culture, a Muslim dietitian understands Ramadan, a Hispanic dietitian understands yuca, platanos, tortillas and rice, and the list goes on and on. The impact that culture and diversity can have on dietetics is so significant and important, the lives that can be changed are in the millions. So yes, diversity matters.
