I have over 20 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian, with experience teaching, developing and evaluating programs to address nutrition, hunger, obesity and chronic disease prevention through public health and community-based programs. My areas of expertise are nutrition education and community and public health nutrition and I worked for many years as lead project dietitian with the New York City Department of Health to implement a child nutrition and physical activity education program for low-income New Yorkers. Career achievements include development, facilitation, project management, and evaluation of evidence-based public health and community programming and curriculum across life spans.<br><br>
I have a passion to connect students to the research, science and public health issues that revolve around nutrition and particularly enjoy teaching university students.
