Heather Hohl, RDN
Membership Chair 2021-2022
How long have you been a RDN?
How long have you been in the Behavior Health Nutrition area?
Why did you join BHN?
I joined BHN because I really value community and meaningful connections, especially with others in the field. BHN is a place to learn from others with a vast amount of experience and wisdom, while also making real changes in the community. It is a fairly large DPG with people from a variety of backgrounds, which create areas of opportunity and growth to learn from different perspectives. The leaders at BHN are also people in the field who inspire me professionally and have mentored me in office hours towards my goal of becoming a CEDRD.
How has BHN helped you professionally?
The leaders of BHN have been encouraging and accessible whenever I have questions about cases, interventions or even career changes. It’s a network for support and continued education, while also offering areas for me to contribute and find purpose in being part of this community. I am a more well rounded and informed professional for engaging in BHN.
What do you think other RD's should know about BHN?
Other dietitians should know that this is a group of volunteers who are passionate about what they do. They also want to hear what you have to say and learn from you too! It’s important to stay up to date on the latest information and being involved in BHN is a great way to do that.
