Are You Ready To Become A Geriatric Dietitian?
The field of geriatrics is booming- it is estimated that 10,000 baby boomers will enter retirement age every single day until 2030. We need geriatric dietitians out there to ensure older adults in our communities receive the very best care possible!

What Does It Take to Become A Geriatric Dietitian?
A Registered Dietitian who has been practicing for at least 2 years and has 2,000 hours of practice experience with older adults can apply to become a Board Certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition (CSG). Once your application is accepted, you can sit for the CSG exam.

AnthroDesk Standing Desk
Katie using standing desk for bloggingWe all know that sitting is bad for your health. And as entrepreneurs we all, no doubt, spend too much time sitting while we work. I recommend using a standing desk throughout the day. It’s good for your health and your business- you will be less strained and more productive!

AnthroDesk has high quality products to help you stay healthy & productive by standing more throughout the day while you work! I use the AnthroDesk: ErgoSpring Standing Desk Converter – Extra Wide & the ErgoSlant Anti-Fatigue Standing Desk Ergonomic Comfort Floor Mat

The adjustable standing desk can be used on any surface- the office or even the kitchen (where I use mine so I can work and watch the kids!). It adjusts from sitting to standing with ease and is completely stable when in the standing position. The floor mat I use is so squishy and comfortable for long periods of standing. This desk has been a lifesaver for me and my blogging business!
