How is nutritional science contextualized among the millennial generation?

I’m Libby Rothschild, registered dietitian, speaker, and academic content creator. I represent nutritional science by creating opportunities for nutrition to be seen as the fundamental standard within patient care.

I believe in creating an ongoing dialogue about nutritional science using multimedia and a multifaceted approach to cater to multiple learning styles. I create content in the form of curricula, speaking and online courses.


Food is not rational. Food is culture, habit, craving and identity.
— Jonathan Safran Foer

My vision

A born explorer, I've always valued the power of learning about nutritional science from a global perspective. After studying food culture and systems in Costa Rica, Hong Kong, and New Orleans I became more curious about how culture and behavior play a role with food choices. During my graduate school studies at New York University I was nominated as the nutrition tutor for the Sheikh Mohammed bin Ziad scholarship fund. Today I regularly create and teach nutrition lecture series to international dental residents, pediatric residents and medical students in New York City. My lecture series blends medical nutrition therapy with nutrition education and behavior change modification.
