I have been a member of DCTX since 2008 as a dietetic intern at UT. It has been nice to have a community of dietitians with a wide array of expertise in the many different areas that an RD/RDN can work in. We can’t be the experts at everything nutrition related, right? 😛

DCTX has allowed me to develop a vast professional network in the Central Texas, many of whom have become close friends. I attribute landing my first job out of college to the connections I’ve made through DCTX! This group of RDs and RDs-to-be are some of the best around!
