Hi Bree,

All these are good ideas.
RE: #1, If you have an MS in nutrition and you're licensed by your state, an MD/PhD is unnecessary. In fact, getting an MD/PhD would damage your credibility and market appeal, when YOU, as a properly credentialed and licensed nutrition professional, are THE expert on healthy eating.

RE: #2, Another good idea, but the smaller companies may be more interested---because they likely have a larger % of their payroll going to pay for health care. A healthy eating class could be just the ticket. Plus larger companies may be looking for an experienced presenter. Starting with the smaller ones would provide that experience.

RE: #3, Another good idea, but, as you said, most hospitals employ dietitians---for inpatient care. Look for hospitals looking to expand/fill their outpatient nutrition positions. In their drive to expand revenue, outpatient services can be more profitable for the hospital with less cost. And many hospitals may not have a spare dietitian to provide outpatient services.

Hope that helps,
Mark Rifkin, MS, RD, LDN
