Nathan Littauer is pleased to announce the arrival of Emily D. Lalonde, a clinical dietitian to the nutrition team. Since June, Emily has been assessing patients and will participate in future health-related events throughout the surrounding community.
“Having an in-house dietitian like Emily is part of Littauer’s commitment to health and wellness. Her passion is a good match to our services particularly as she assists seniors with their nutritional needs,” said Cheryl McGrattan, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Littauer.
Erika Winney, the Clinical Nutrition Manager states, “Emily could have chosen to practice anywhere, and I am so thrilled she chose Nathan Littauer. People will notice Emily’s energy and passion-particularly as she works with our senior community.”
As a recent graduate from the State University of Oneonta, Emily earned a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics, and a Bachelors of Science in Dietetics. Impressively, she maintained a 3.96 grade point average while attending SUNY Oneonta.
Emily says, “Choosing Nathan Littauer as my first placement as a newly registered dietitian was one of the best decisions I could have made. You can truly tell that this facility is its own community and that each staff member cares for not only the patients, but also each other. Having a hospital, nursing home, and growing outpatient program all under one roof makes for a great place to grow as a nutrition professional.”
Prior to graduation, Emily served as an intern at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, where she completed a 19-week clinical rotation. She also published two articles focusing on low birth weight in infants.
Emily rounded out her education volunteering for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Boiler Maker Expo. She also has studied abroad in Columbia.
Emily now resides in Amsterdam, New York.
