Celebrating Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day

Here at God’s Love, we have some of the most dedicated and knowledgeable Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) around! Every day, they work with our clients to develop an individualized nutrition plan that effectively helps our clients manage their illness and boost their immune system. This Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, we want to take a moment to highlight seven things that make our RDNs such a critical part of God’s Love.

1. Provide Medical Nutrition Therapy to Manage Illness and Improve Quality of Life

Our RDNs  work with each client to individualize their meal plans according to their illnesses, treatments, and preferences.

2. Develop and Analyze Recipes

In partnership with our Kitchen Team, God’s Love RDNs help develop recipes for our clients. They ensure every single meal has the right components to nourish our clients.

3. Train the Next Generation of RDNs

Our RDNs routinely train dietetic interns and mentor nutrition students. They share critical knowledge and ensure each student leaves God’s Love feeling empowered and equipped to succeed in their nutrition careers!

4. Keep Us All Safe

Our RDNs and Kitchen Team coordinate food safety and sanitation practices so that all meals travel safely throughout the building and to the homes of our clients.

5. Provide Ongoing Counseling

Our RDNs provide ongoing counseling and education – including nutrition reassessments. Our RDNs also provide cooking demonstrations, teleconferences, and webinars on nutrition.

6. Nutrition for All

Our RDNs provide nutrition counseling in multiple languages! Our publications are in English and Spanish, and our illness fact sheets are in English, Spanish, and Chinese. 

7. Provide Continuous Care

Our RDNs care about the physical and emotional health and well-being of all our clients and their families!
