Recently, I was talking to someone who knows I am a dietitian. I was talking about work and seeing patients. He said, “I thought you just walked around and handed papers to doctors.” I really had no idea what to say to this. For the record, I do not walk around all day and give doctors papers. I would like to know what you think a dietitian is. What comes to mind? If you are familiar with dietitians, what were your perceptions beforehand?
