Making Nutrition Your Business w/ Carlene Thomas

In the field of dietetics, there is a common misconception that the only career path to follow is the traditional role of a clinical dietitian. There’s nothing wrong with working in a clinical setting (we’ve both done it and loved it) but the reality is that there are other options.
