Symposium Session: RDs in Concierge Medicine

Concierge medical practices are growing around the United States, especially in major metropolitan areas. Many use health coaching to provide wellness services and programming to their members (patients). RDs can be a vital part of this booming model, as an employee, a contractor, or in establishing a strong referral source for private practice leads. 

Join Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN, as she details the opportunities for dietitians to be involved in concierge medicine. Kennedy will discuss the importance of understanding this space better and will explain how RDs can demonstrate their value to concierge medical practices through smart proposals and strong execution of deliverables.
