Nutrition expert can help save your life

Forty years ago, with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and few job opportunities, I realized it was time to reevaluate where my professional passion was and whether could I make a living following the dream. As a child I spent weekends working in my father’s deli, making thick roast beef sandwiches and trying my best to slice a thin sliver of lox. I also saw my father suffer most of his life with ulcers, ultimately getting half his stomach removed. It seemed the study of nutrition would combine my love of food with the tools to help people with digestive disorders.
