Careers in Genetics: Dietitian/Nutritionist

Dietitians and nutritionists work with individuals who need nutritional guidance, frequently for disease prevention or management (for example, diabetes or celiac disease). These professionals often work as part of a medical team in hospitals, private practice, or other health-care facilities. Dietitians must pass a national exam to be registered, and many states require similar registration for nutritionists.
