Take your career to the next level!

JOIN the DIFM Leadership Team
Act by Oct 15th

Integrative and Functional nutrition is powerful, and it’s growing in popularity every year. So, how do you fit into the future of IFN?

You have an opportunity right now to accelerate both your career satisfaction, success, and enjoyment with one simple step: join the DIFM leadership team!

There are numerous advantages of serving with us:

  • Establish yourself as an IFN expert: you’ll be a leader in a group with approximately 4,000 IFN dietitians. That says a lot about you.
  • Gain valuable and fulfilling connections: you’ll have opportunities to learn from (and collaborate with) the top IFN dietitians
  • Serve the movement: if you’ve been frustrated with the current status quo of nutrition practice, this is your chance to change the tide. IFM is leading the charge of providing individualized, root-cause, integrative care…and we need your help!

Take a moment right now to visualize your career: where you want to be, and how you want it to feel. Imagine what leadership with DIFM could do to get you there.

If you don’t peg yourself as the ‘leadership type’, don’t get discouraged. We have many opportunities, some of which are behind the scenes and some of which are classic leadership roles. There’s a fit for everyone who wants to build meaningful connections with other IFN dietitians, established expertise, and an accelerated path to your career goals.
