Hello. let me introduce myself, I am a pediatric dietitian/nutritionist specializing in nutrition therapy for children from conception to teens, working to optimize nutrition therapy for families including pregnant moms, babies, kids with food allergies, teen athletes and kids with anorexia nervosa
I have been caring for the nutritional needs of children for over 20 years at 3 of the top Children’s Hospitals in the country: Duke Medical Center Children’s Hospital, University of North Carolina Children’s Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and now through my private practice at KidsRD.com.
I have been fortunate to have helped families and children to improve their health and ensure children grow to their full potential through good nutrition. I have found that although parents might not always do so for themselves, they are eager to know how to provide good nutrition for their child.
I would be honored and privileged to work with you, your families and your team.
I just wanted to thank you SO much for joining us tonight! I wish I had recorded all of the accolades you received after you departed this evening - your engaging, thorough, and thoughtful review of pediatric malnutrition was extremely well-received by this group. They are definitely in the beginning stages of identifying and documenting pediatric malnutrition but please know by the conversation that took place after you left, it is clear that you inspired each and every one of them to incorporate the principles you presented into practice!
Thank you again for your wonderful presentation.
