As a dietitian I am committed to the vision of holistic health: I believe that even though health and well-being can be broken down into parts each part is ultimately inseparable from the whole. That’s why I’m so excited to be part of Verywell and its mission of bringing reliable, practical, and up-to-date health information to the public and help fit those pieces together.
