answer
There are many places to find a registered dietitian (RD). Many RDs are working in the outpatient department of hospitals, in clinics, and often times, in private practice. Check with your insurance company to see if your policy covers nutrition counseling by an RD as many do. They will also have a list of RD for you to visit.

Another way to find an RD is to visit the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) website at: www.eatright.org. Then click on "Find an RD."
