Do you want to see clients with earlier stage CKD? Want to help people avoid dialysis? Expand your renal nutrition knowledge base past dialysis? Work with highly motivated clients hungry for your expertise and guidance? Finally be able to coordinate with your nephrologist who has been begging you to see a few of his patients? And get PAID to do it?
Nutrition therapy for CKD is a BIG deal for people with CKD. Patients want the information and know it can help them fight their kidney disease. BUT - way too often clients can’t find RDs with renal expertise. Patients piece together their diet from basic hospital guidelines, general practitioners, the internet, and their friends. They are left confused and scared. Dietitians with renal expertise are desperately needed to address the growing epidemic of CKD and be the light and guide that patients need to avoid dialysis.
Starting a business, working with nephrologists, and becoming the go-to renal nutrition expert outside of the dialysis clinic doesn’t have to be overwhelming or complex.
Three renal dietitians team up to bring you training in their area of expertise. Steve Della Croce, MS, RDN, CDN, owner of Nutrition Management, brings his 14 years of nutrition experience as well as business experience to take you into a deep dive of starting your own business. Jessianna Saville, MS, RDN, CSR, LD, CLT brings her love of CKD MNT best practice and practical practice guidelines to the table to dispel confusion about the research. Lindsey Zirker, MS, RDN, CSR brings her functional/integrative training and in-depth knowledge and research of supplements and other holistic therapies to the table to highlight the importance of root cause analysis.
