Today we’re talking with Katherine Basbaum, a clinical dietitian for the Heart & Vascular Center at UVA Health System. She received her Master’s in Nutrition Communication from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University and completed her dietetic internship at UVA Health System. Katherine is passionate about nutrition as medicine for chronic disease, and believes the key to her patients’ success lies in the establishment of realistic, achievable goals.
When not at the hospital, you can find Katherine hosting heart healthy cooking classes in the community, conducting nutritional analysis for local restaurants and writing or speaking on the topic of heart healthy nutrition for local publications and media outlets.
