SCORE Dietitian Awarded CSSD

Natalie Christensen, RDN, LD, spends her workdays in gyms, on athletic fields, and even on team travel buses. As the sports nutritionist who manages Smart Cooking on the Run Every Day (SCORESM), Christensen champions a collaborative effort between Idaho State University and Dairy West, a regional dairy promotion organization, to empower ISU student-athletes with the skills and know-how required to eat well and optimize their performance.

Christensen recently became the fifth dietitian in the state of Idaho to become a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). The “CSSD is the premier professional sports nutrition credential in the U.S.,” according to the Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN) practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “Being Board Certified as a Specialist in Sports Dietetics designates specific knowledge, skills, and expertise for competency in sports dietetics practice.”
