Conversation 82: The Story, Journey and Passion of Mitch Zandes, MS, RD, CSCS
“One of the biggest pleasures I’ve found out about being an inpatient dietitian is being one of the services that actually sit down and listen to the patient by talking to them and kind of making them feel safe by listening to what they have to say. In my role, I definitely take pride in being something that is going to give my education and treat the patient, but at the same time, I’m going to ask them how there day was. I am going to ask them about their family and build a relationship.” - Mitch Zandes, MS, RD, CSCS
Today’s conversation is with Mitch Zandes, a registered clinical dietitian who has an interesting journey to dietetics and who has a goal of being the smartest dietitian that ever was.
There are some humans you come across and just know you instantly like. Mitch is one of those dietitians who caught my eye with his passion for discussing nutrition research and creating conversations in a unique way on social media. During our conversation, Mitch gets very personal about his journey to dietetics and how his life has changed dramatically over the past six years. After listening to this conversation, you will understand why he wants to keep gaining as much knowledge as possible in dietetics, how he uses social media to grow his expertise, and how I would want him to be my dietitian in the hospital.
Please enjoy my conversation with Mitch.
