There are many resources available to assist students in passing the examination to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Dietetic Technician, Registered. Listed here are a few resources. This is not an extensive list and the Michigan Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics does not endorse any specific preparatory resource.

Students are always looking for opportunities to showcase their talents and learn more about the variety that the nutrition and dietetics field has to offer. You’re in luck, because many dietitians have projects and programs that they need student volunteers to help them with!

If you are a dietitian or nutrition professional looking for assistance on a project or program you’re working on, or if you’d like to mentor a student, you can have your contact information posted here.

Students, check back often for vounteer opportunities in your area.

Tabor Gleason

Hi! My name is Tabor Gleason and I am in my second year of the Master of Science in Clinical Dietetics program at Grand Valley State University. I have a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Exercise Science from GVSU and have a strong interest in sports dietetics and cardiac rehab. Currently, I am working on a thesis involving RED-S and female athletes at GVSU. As a former collegiate athlete, this topic is near and dear to my heart! I think it is important to be involved in the dietetics community and that’s why I’m excited to be a student liaison for MiAND.
