We Know California

California is a melting pot of cultures and styles. We celebrate this diversity and recognize that your nutritional needs are as unique as the state you call home.

Culina Health registered dietitians are multilingual, provide culturally affirming care, and are dedicated to helping you achieve your health goals.

Join us on a journey to better health, vitality, and a nutrition plan as diverse and dynamic as the Golden State itself.
When Culina Health registered dietitian Cesar Sauza was a teenager, he was diagnosed with various medical conditions.

As Cesar embarked on his own journey towards better health, he observed disparities in the way that health and nutrition education is delivered to underserved communities — including his own. This led him to pursue a career in clinical nutrition, providing knowledge, support, and care to patients of all ages and backgrounds.

Today, he applies his collaborative counseling style to meet his patients where they are. Together, Cesar and his patients uncover a sustainable path towards their long term goals.

Cesar holds a Master of Science in Nutritional Science from California State University Los Angeles, and completed his dietetic internship at University of Southern California Community Diabetes Initiative, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Country Villa Rehabilitation Center.

Cesar’s favorite cultural dish is oiled pinto beans topped with onion, cilantro, fresh cheese, and accompanied by fresh handmade corn tortillas.

What can a registered dietitian licensed in my state help me with?

How do I find a registered dietitian licensed in my state who can work with me?

We’re so glad you asked. Book your first session to share a little bit more about your health needs and counseling preferences, and we will match you with a registered dietitian licensed to practice in your state. You can also browse all of our registered dietitians.

Why does a registered dietitian need to be licensed in my state for virtual appointments? 

Since registered dietitians provide medical nutrition therapy to patients, they must abide by the licensure laws of the state in which they are practicing. If a registered dietitian is located in a different state than their patient, the patient’s state is considered the practice location (even if sessions are held online). We will help you find a registered dietitian nutritionist licensed to provide virtual care near you.  

I’m a registered dietitian and I’m interested in joining Culina Health. How do I get started?
