Event Description

Plant-based foods are becoming increasingly popular, but why? Research has shown that a higher consumption of plant-based foods may reduce the development of many chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Join Kaitlin Poillon, MS, RDN, LDN during National Heart Month as she discusses the importance of incorporating plant-based foods into your diet to reduce the risk of chronic disease.

She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Delaware as well as a Master of Science Degree in Dietetics from the University of Rhode Island. Kaitlin is a passionate and knowledgeable clinician with years of ongoing professional experience in many different settings, including acute clinical care, weight management, oncology, and outpatient nutrition counseling. She possesses extensive knowledge of Medical Nutrition Therapy to prevent and/or manage many different disease states, including but not limited to Diabetes, Heart Disease, GI Diseases, Cancer, Renal Disease, and many more. Kaitlin focuses much of her outpatient work in helping clients form healthy, sustainable, and balanced relationships with food.
