Who is Your RD? To Mark First Registered Dietitian Day, American Dietetic Association Urges Everyone to Start Having an Annual 'Nutrition Checkup'

Insurance coverage is only one of the benefits of choosing a registered dietitian over someone calling him or herself a "nutritionist," who could be anyone from a personal trainer to a health fo
