Teri Lichtenstein, an accredited nutritionist, practising dietitian (APD) and sports dietitian discusses the impact that social media and ‘Dr.Google’ is having on the food and healthcare sectors. As consumers are presented with innumerable sources of fast-moving information online what now denotes credibility – substantiated facts or the number of followers? How can practicing nutritionists and dietitians make themselves heard in a space where anyone can be the (self-proclaimed) expert?
