Personal Statement

Nutrition is an evolving and ever changing science. I have spent a lifetime exploring how food and nutrition contribute to the prevention of disease, the maintenance of good health and medical nutrition therapy. My aim is to provide evidence-based information and help people recognize the complex behavioral and cultural components that often affect personal food choices. Together with your health care team, we will create an action plan to meet your health care goals.
