About the Age-Defying Dietitian Kathryn Piper

Registered Dietitians & Healthy Aging

Nutrition is an essential part of healthy aging!  Improving your diet can maximize your health, improve your skin, and prevent chronic disease.

Anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist”. Only a RD or RDN has completed multiple layers of education and training. 

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist attended several years of higher education, passed a national exam, and complete 1200 hours of supervised practice. 

When seeking out nutrition guidance, ensure you are working with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
