Why major in Dietary Management?
Accredited by the Dietary Management Association (DMA), the Dietary Manager program will empower graduates to run medical nutrition and general food service establishments. Dietary Managers act as supervisors or managers over long-term care facilities, assisted living, small hospitals, schools, military, and other non-commercial settings and are an important part of the nutrition care team. Dietary Managers can hire dietary workers, purchase food, supervise preparation, distribution, and clean up of meals, snacks, and supplements. They are also responsible for food safety and for selecting foods that conform with diet prescriptions.
