Dr. Colin is an assistant professor with the University of North Florida, and an officer in the United States Army Reserve. She believes that in order to elevate the dietetics profession, we must prove the value of registered dietitian nutritionists through objective data directly linking medical nutrition therapy with outcomes. She is also a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Health Informatics Infrastructure Subcommittee and a collaborator on the Academy’s Breastfeeding and Diabetes Registry Studies. Her research focuses on measuring medical nutrition therapy impact through use of the Nutrition Care Process and Terminology and is an advocate of registry study participation among practicing registered dietitian nutritionists. With a vision that registered dietitian nutritionists will share the spotlight with physicians, nurses, and other allied health professions, Dr. Colin’s quest is to inspire registered dietitian nutritionists to become leaders in healthcare. Success is an evolution, and registered dietitian nutritionists will gain greater appreciation as experts within healthcare as services they provide continue to become highly valued as the key to prevention and treatment. This journey will involve critical research to maintain proficiency, ethical clinical care, expansion and education of peer providers, progressive professional and cultural advocacy, and community engagement.
