"Dietitians used to be workhorses, somewhere hidden in the food service facility or on the hospital floors. Now, the profession has changed, and Dietitians are the Show-Horse - representing their professional unit, providing nutrition knowledge and background, and pushing Public Health efforts forward."

- Anna Graf Williams, Ph.D author of Creating Your Career Portfolio At-A-Glance Guide for Dietitians


The mission of the CPD is to provide an integrated academic/supervised practice curriculum to prepare competent entry-level dietitians to promote optimal health and nutritional status of individuals and groups. The curriculum provides the foundation knowledge and skills, and the practitioner-based competencies to perform the specialized functions of an entry-level dietitian. The CPD prepares competent dietitians for positions in nutrition therapy, food service management, and community nutrition. This broad approach is supported by our engagement concentration.
