Suggested CDR learning codes: 1010, 1070, 1130, 4020, 7010, 7050, 7150; Level 2
The increase in the number of supermarkets employing RDs has presented an exciting new employment segment within the dietetics profession. While all supermarket dietitians share the common goal of assisting people in making better food choices, the skill sets necessary to land a job as a supermarket dietitian include not only dietetics but also marketing, public relations, sales, merchandising, communications, clinical expertise, and public health. This session will examine the trends related to this new career path and examine ways to build the skill set necessary to land a job in this setting.
