Buildup Dietitians

Genetic Engineering, gene edited, bioengineered…it’s a confusing world of words when it comes to the terminology around the use of technology in agriculture. As dietitians it’s important for us to be knowledgeable about these issues, both for our retailer and our customers.  As the founder of Buildup Dietitians (Facebook, @BuildupRDNs), one of my goals has been to promote individuals and organizations that seek to provide science-based information about a variety of topics like agriculture and especially the use of biotechnology. 

Buildup Dietitians (BUD) is a social media presence founded in 2014 by Leah McGrath and curated by a group of 8 global dietitians (5 dietitians in the U.S, 1 in the UK, 1 in Spain and 1 in France) that share evidence-based and sometimes humorous content for dietitians. BUD also showcases dietitians and other experts on monthly Facebook Live events, provides stipends for dietitians to attend events and connects dietitians with opportunities for writing, webinars and public speaking.
