Today on The WoMed, Lauren Link (@linktonutrition) joins D and Dani to define what exactly it means to be a dietician, her role as Director of Sports Nutrition at Purdue, and how athletes can effectively transition to post-athlete life. After playing soccer in college, Lauren knows exactly what it means to be an athlete. Her experience and degrees allow her to be prepared for whatever the day may hold as a college dietician, because every day is truly unique. The WoMed and Lauren discuss the requirements to become a dietician, the comments that set off the growing field of sports nutrition, and the struggles athletes face when they lose their athlete identity. Lauren refutes the biggest misconceptions about her career and discusses the misinformation she seeks to combat through social media.
