For Dietitians:

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.
