Krystle Zuniga PhD, RD, LD
As a scientist, I have conducted nutrition and cancer research for over 10 years. I have a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Illinois, and I am a registered and licensed dietitian, trained in medical nutrition therapy. I have taught a variety of nutrition courses to over 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students. I have had the privilege to educate future health care professionals and conduct research to answer unknowns about diet and cancer, but I have felt a calling to do more to serve the cancer community. In speaking with cancer patients and survivors over the years, I discovered that many received little nutrition information during and after treatment and had difficulty finding or accessing this information. The mission of ZNutrition is to share my experience and knowledge so that others can Know More and Fear Less about food. I love nutrition, and want others to learn how it can help them live their best life.
