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? 😛

I first joined DCTX as a student to learn more about the field of dietetics. Even several years later, I continue to expand my knowledge through valuable CEU opportunities and still look forward to networking and socializing with local RDs!

I look forward to the opportunities to connect with other dietitians in the area to network but also hear what they are doing since there is such a variety of jobs a dietitian can have. I also enjoy the speed mentoring events to help students figure out where to go next. I love that DCTX donates to local causes.
