In my early twenties, I became very involved in my local running and triathlon clubs. I competed in several local races and events, this reignited my interest in nutrition.
After researching nutrition/dietetic programs and decided on a Dietetic Technician (DTR) program at Tarrant County College. I applied to (DTR) Program because:
In 2013, when I returned back to school, I had absolutely zero knowledge or experience in the nutrition/dietetics field. It was a bit overwhelming. I thought I wanted to pursue sports nutrition because I was knees deep in health and fitness.
As I began to learn more, my areas of interest changed from sports nutrition to community nutrition. My plan was always to continue my education to become a Registered Dietitian.
Completing a DTR-Program may be a great way to get your foot in the door of nutrition and dietetics at an affordable price. It can also be a great way to start building your dietetics network. I have many friends who are DTRs and others who continued on to become RDs.
