Not only is this timely and relevant to future practice, but it can be considered now in practice. The required reading is thorough, well referenced and well written and the study course and exam are easy to understand and reasonably structured.

More than two decades ago, Ronni Chernoff, a former president of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, said "Dietitians have lost opportunities by not branching out." This CPE program provides the reader with some potentially new or expanded career opportunities. It also opens the thought process to consider new areas of graduate education to broaden the professional base of knowledge we bring to the table. Staying on the cutting edge is essential for dietiitans at all stages of their career.
