Racial Bias in Healthcare w/ Maya Feller


Today we’re talking with Maya Feller, MS, RD, CDN, who’s a Registered Dietitian specializing in chronic disease prevention. Maya shares her approachable, real food based solutions to millions of people through regular speaking engagements and as a nutrition expert on The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America. Maya is also an adjunct professor at NYU where she teaches nutrition.

Maya received her masters of science in nutrition at New York University and completed her clinical nutrition training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. After graduating, Maya established a DOHMH funded food and nutrition program in an outpatient setting where she oversaw the nutrition program, counseled patients and was responsible for the daily soup kitchen and weekly food pantry where she partnered with neighborhood CSAs and food co-ops to bring local and organic food to her clients.

Alongside her speaking priorities, Maya runs a private practice in Brooklyn, New York. Ensuring that her clients have access to high-quality local and organic foods is a top priority. When working with clients, Maya believes in meeting the whole person where they are and using a patient-centered, culturally sensitive approach to enable each client to meet their unique nutrition-related goals.
