Date:7/21/2009

NEW YORK, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Jersey Dietetic Association (NJDA) awarded Jaime Schwartz the Young Dietitian of the Year Award for her achievements since becoming a registered dietitian (RD) in 2002.

Schwartz, an account supervisor in the Food & Well-Connected Practice at Ketchum, a global public relations agency, was presented the award at NJDA's annual meeting on May 8, where she was also featured in a panel discussion, "RDs Breaking Barriers: An Inside Look at Nontraditional Careers and How to Get There."

Over the course of Schwartz's young career, the past three years of which have been at Ketchum's New York office, she has emerged as an up-and-coming leader in the dietetics profession.

Among her contributions to the profession, Schwartz has served in these roles:

  • Mentoring chair of the Dietitians in Business and Communications practice group
  • Co-editor of the NJDA quarterly newsletter News & Views
  • Secretary of Penn State's Nutrition and Dietetics Alumni Society
  • Lead author of research published in professional journals about "portion distortion," nutritional labeling and portion-size measurement aids

The award also recognized her client work at Ketchum. In her unique role as an RD in public relations, Schwartz leads the professional education activities for large food corporations, helping to create valuable educational opportunities, including symposiums and webinars, for thousands of RDs every year. She also oversees the development of tools important to nutrition educators. In addition, Schwartz was recognized for helping to create opportunities for RDs to gain visibility as the go-to source for nutrition information.

Schwartz was previously the recipient of Ketchum's Global Practice Catalyst award in 2007, and led the execution of two different public relations campaigns that won the Public Relations Society of America's coveted Silver Anvil award. Her 2006 research, published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, was the focus of an Associated Press story and also received significant media coverage in consumer and health publications.
