Hi there!

Welcome to Sage Nutrition Associates.
rd exam prep

In 2017, we set out with the vision to bring intentional, fully-comprehensive RD exam preparation to the modern student. Today, we’re still forging our way — committed to teaching and refining the virtual RD exam review workshop.

Our mission is to create high quality RD exam review materials and engaging workshops. We do this by using evidence-based teaching methods and incorporating invaluable feedback we get from instructors and students. 

Our goal? To strengthen the connection between knowledge of the RD exam topics and practice in the next generation of dietetics professionals. We hope to see all dietetic students and registered dietitians thrive in their professional lives

We value you and want your success just as much as you do.
We’re here for you. Helping you. Supporting you. Succeeding together.
