How to Become a Nutritionist in District of Columbia - DC
The question is not how to become a nutritionist in Washington, DC; it is, what will you choose to do with the skills you develop through training? How does executive chef sound? What about contributing editor or nutritional advisor to the White House? These and many other careers — such as diabetes nutrition educator, nutrition services supervisor, nutrition technician or nutrition program manager — are possible for those who have been educated in nutrition or a similar health-related field. Coursework for degree programs in this field may cover topics such as diet, anatomy and exercise, along with core classes in science, biology, chemistry and mathematics.
