Meet ACD's Registered Dietitian

Amanda Gallaher, MPH, RD - Michigan

I am very excited to work at ACD with staff and Providers to build healthy eating habits in young children. As part of my role, I provide nutrition training and education, which includes developing resources found online and in ACD's publications. I am eager to expand the nutrition and health resources available to providers.

I completed my Master of Public Health degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics and Dietetic Internship at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. I received my Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan. I am an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Michigan Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and I am a passionate advocate for programs that increase access to healthy food across Michigan and Illinois.
