5 Things a Dietitian Would Never Say

Re-post from an article a fellow RDN, Julie Upton of the website Appetite for Health, wrote for US News and World Report: 5 Things a Dietitian Would Never Say

Beward of these red flags, pseudoscience, and fear mongering 'sells' to try to get consumers to pay big bucks for less-than-data-backed info.  The science of nutrition is constantly evolving because it is such a young science.  That said, please vet your healthcare professionals!

International Food Information Council Foundation Fellowship

What a Fascinating Opportunity!

The International Food Information Council (IFIC) - the wonderful people we can thank for bringing science-based nutrition and food safety information to a multitude of stakeholders in policy, journalism, and healthcare - have released their annual application for the Sylvia Rowe fellowship.

The fellowship gives the opportunity to one individual to intern (for pay) in Washington, DC with the IFIC to help enhance their communication skills, specifically in the field of nutrition and food safety information.  The Fellowship lasts from 6-12 weeks and must be completed within the calendar year.  Application deadline is February 14th, 2014. 

Very cool!  I wish I had been able to take advantage of this program.  :)
