Important Medical & Dietetic Leaders* to know:

These are all unbelievable people who are practicing evidence-based medicine that heals. They have become my real life heroes because they not only work with patients who come to see them, they are constantly posting research, studies, and other information to help educate the general public (which is why I included a lot of their social media links!).

*There are too many credentials for me to mention; check out their individual links for some more information on their backgrounds and expertise as many are leaders in even more than just the medical field; they are academics, advocates for public health, speakers, authors, etc.!
