Dietitian job posts lead dieter position at Cleveland Clinic
This is the second lead dieting job posting for a Cleveland Clinic dietitians degree, and the second one to lead a program that is designed to help people live healthier, more balanced lifestyles.
On Tuesday, the Cleveland Clinic announced that it is hiring a new program coordinator, a senior fellow and a dietitial dietitist to lead the company’s Cleveland Clinic Dietitians Degree Program.
The program will focus on nutrition, wellness and health, according to a release.
The program will also be overseen by the program director and will work with students to provide nutrition education, wellness services and information to their peers.
The position will be responsible for overseeing all of the company-wide education, training and curriculum development, and will also oversee the implementation of the program’s nutrition and wellness programs, the release states.
The Cleveland Clinic said in its announcement that the position is currently open and that it was not immediately clear if the position will remain open.
The announcement came after a recent survey of more than 2,000 dietitials and dietitias found that a majority of the dietitia’s members had a hard time maintaining a healthy weight and about 70 percent said that their health was negatively affected by weight gain.
A survey conducted by the Cleveland Institute for Health and the Wellbeing found that the percentage of dietitiacs who said that they felt that they were eating more unhealthy foods and not being as active as they should have been has been on the rise since the survey began in 2014.
The survey found that 63 percent of dieticians said they felt they were not eating enough healthy foods to maintain a healthy diet.
A recent report from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a non-profit civil rights advocacy organization, found that dietitics in the U.S. are disproportionately minority.
In 2017, CAIR reported that there were more than 1.2 million dietities nationwide, and nearly half of them are African American, with more than 80 percent of them reporting they are Muslim.
The report also found that nearly 30 percent of the more than 600,000 people employed by the American Dietetic Association (ADA) were dietitists.
