Nutrition by Carrie Speaking


While I love working with individual patients and clients one-on-one, I also enjoy speaking to larger audiences. My specialty is cutting through the “noise” around much of the nutrition information we see on the Web and in mass media, distilling it down to what is essential and based on real science. I never give a talk without leaving my audience with solid “take-away” information that they can use to improve their health and well-being.
