Germaine Guy


My name is Germaine Guy. I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in nutrition/dietetics. I’ll hold a specialty certification in renal nutrition but I’m also interested in sports nutrition and whole foods plant-based nutrition.

I honestly don’t feel like I’ve experienced any barriers being an African-American male dietitian. Being a minority in both race and sex allows me stand out and provide a different viewpoint in dietetics.

I don’t think it’s the university’s fault for the lack of inclusivity. Any student of any race or sex can choose to major in dietetics if they choose to. I think it is up to minority dietitians to show students that there are dietitians of all races and act as mentors to guide them through the process of becoming a dietitian.
