Join HealthComU as we celebrate National Nutrition Month with Ayla Withee (@EatSimply), MS, RD, LDN, during a HealthComU (#HealthComUChat) Twitter Chat. On Wednesday, March 18, 2015, at 8:30 p.m. (EDT) Ayla will share her tips on successfully combining her passion for nutrition with health communication.
Ayla Withee is a Boston-based registered dietitian nutritionist with a Masters of Science in Health Communication from Boston University. She is owner and chief nutritionist for Boston Functional Nutrition, LLC, an integrative and functional nutrition therapy practice based in Natick, MA. In addition to providing nutrition counseling for individuals, Ayla also consults for a fortune 500 company, providing corporate wellness program management. She has written and lectured widely on various nutrition topics including food allergies and sensitivities, fertility, detoxification, organic and GMO foods. You can find her blogging about all things nutrition at Eat Simply.
Ayla will discuss the difference between her experience practicing in the corporate world and her decision to launch her own practice, as well as how she decided to pursue a health communication degree from Boston University. We will explore the topic of blogging about health (something we know a little about here at HealthComU!), including the ethics behind product endorsements, and we’ll round things out with a discussion of diet and nutrition questions that Ayla is most commonly asked.
