There are many incredible resources on Facebook for dietitians who are interested in learning more from other dietitians about social media, entrepreneurial opportunities, media placement, and more! You may already be a member of some or all of them, but today we’re sharing the following list in the hopes that you check them out and join the ones that could prove valuable to your practice.
Many are closed groups, which means you’ll have to request membership on the respective Facebook pages, then verify that you’re a dietitian for the group administrator. Once you’re a part of the group, introduce yourself, engage, learn and contribute. There’s no time like the present to support one another as the health experts!
Dietitians on the Blog
Dietitians on the Blog, hosted by Danielle Omar and Jessa Nowak, is for RDN bloggers. RDNs in this group “…support one another through the power of group sharing. We are a group of ambitious dietitians who are making this world a healthier place by providing quality and credible content.” As a member myself, I can attest to the sharing and support of this group’s fabulous members – many include one another’s content in social posts and on their own blogs.
