Hi! I’m Rita Smith, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator. I’ve been working in the field of nutrition and disease prevention for over 35 years, and currently work at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA. I look forward to chatting with you each week on various nutrition topics –  from using dietary approaches for cholesterol reduction to managing the painful symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Nutrition is ever-changing and can even be confusing. I hope to make sense of current nutrition topics and provide reasonable, healthy-eating tips for you and your family to be well and stay well. Of course, for medical advice, diagnosis, treatment and care, be sure to work with your own health care provider.
