  1. Why did you choose to be a Registered/Licensed Dietician?

Nutrition/Dietetics is a growing and changing field. There is always new research or technology to be learned. Also, in dietetics there is more than one career path such as education, healthcare, pharmaceutical, extension service, etc. I mainly chose dietetics as my career to serve others. I enjoy working in the field of dietetics to be a resource for people to acquire nutrition knowledge to improve or maintain good health and enjoy a healthy life.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Gary Fornera’s since March 2013 concerning pre-cancer of the vulva region.  After undergoing 4 partial vulnectomies, I want you to know how compassionate, caring and what an understanding doctor he has been to me.  He is a wonderful asset to your medical clinic.  His nurse, Andrea, is pretty awesome also."
