Did you know there were dietitians working in retail as far back as 1974? At this year’s What’s in Store event, the Retail Dietitians Business Alliance took the lead from the 100-year celebration of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and featured a video of retail dietitian pioneers.
Those featured in the video include Jane Andrews, Cherryl Bell, Rosie Benner, Anne-Marie Davee, Margaret McEwan, Jeanine Sherry, Shari Steinbach, and Janet Tenney. Their stories provide great insight into the origins of this career path and will inspire you with their forward-thinking approach to their roles. The video is available here.
Thank you to Janet, Shari, Jeanine, Margaret, Anne-Marie, Rosie, Cherryl and Jane for their work to establish retail dietetics and for sharing their inspiring stories with us!
