Hello and Welcome.
I am Rick Bennett RDN CSR.
I'm a professional, licensed Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, and Certified Specialist in Renal Nutrition.
Over 24 years of experience in clinical nutrition gives me a depth of knowledge to share with you. Particularly if you are concerned with weight, diabetes, diet and inflammation. Or you have other nutrition and lifestyle needs.
My experiences range from working in hospitals providing critical nutrition care; to working in clinics providing diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, and weight management counseling.
For many years I held a specialty certification in nutrition support (feeding using alternate routes). Most recently I have been working with gastric cancer survivors.
In 2016, I authored the Obesity and Weight Management Nutrition Practice Guidelines for Kaiser Permanente Northern California.
Creating tools and teaching classes are especially satisfying for me.
One of my proudest achievements is obtaining a certificate in counseling 'Building Connected People' from the Pleasanton Counseling and Training Center.
Let's work toward your goals!
On vacation with my husband in Shanghai. At our AirBnB on the Bund.
