Program: Dietetics

Eastern Michigan University's Coordinated Program in Dietetics (CPD) is one of only two fully accredited programs in the State of Michigan. Registered Dietitians work with people of all ages to treat and prevent disease. Dietitians are employed in a variety of settings, including community agencies, acute care, long-term care, schools, home health care, business and industry, private practice, research and education. The program is available entirely online or on EMU's main campus.
