Hillary & Lia: What is a Registered Dietitian
(inspirational instrumental music)
– Hi, I am Hillary Vogt and
I’m a registered dietician.
– And I’m Lia Bahls, and I’m
also registered dietician
with Iowa Weight Loss Specialists.
– A registered dietician is somebody
that goes to school for
dietetics or nutrition,
so we complete bachelor’s degree.
We are required to do a
internship after college
and that’s where we go
through different rotations,
so clinical, community, food service.
And then, after our internship,
we do have a certification exam.
And so, all registered dieticians
have passed this certification exam.
And in the state of Iowa,
we are also licensed
by the state as well.
