I’m a Dietitian… but what do I actually do?

Dr Trent Watson - CEO & Fatigue Consultant

Ask someone in the street what a dietitian does and they can probably tell you the basics. It’s reasonably well known that accredited practicing dietitians can support people to manage health conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, overweight and obesity, and help athletes optimise sport nutrition as well. But most people don’t appreciate the full breadth of what a dietitian can actually do!

Dietitians Australia have been running a campaign to lift the lid on dietetics by interviewing a series of practitioners whose usual work is a little outside the box. Episode #6 of their podcast series is with Ethos Health CEO, Dr Trent Watson, and covers some of the more unique aspects of Trent’s work and career as a fatigue management expert.
