We are what we eat? Maybe not. But we all know that our health and well-being are impacted by our diet. Dieticians and nutritionists work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics and private practices creating personalized nutrition programs to create, restore or support the health of patients and clients. You can earn a certificate or an associate degree in nutrition and dietetics to become a technician in the field.
