March 15 is Dietitians day! Today, we celebrate dietitians and their important role as health care professionals – dietitans like Melissa Baker, Manager of Nutrition & Wellbeing at UBC Student Housing and Hospitality Services. Melissa is a graduate of UBC’s integrated dietetic program at the Faculty of Land and Food Systems.
Eric Skalij has published a Q&A with Melissa on ReachOut in celebration of Dietitians Day.
