After gaining experience in the inpatient care setting at Children’s Medical Center Dallas specializing in cardiology, gastroenterology, diabetes and breastfeeding support, she joined the LEAN Families team to pursue her interest in weight management. LEAN (Lifestyle, Exercise and Nutrition) Families is a family-centered, multi-disciplinary, weight management program for children and their families now operating at Children’s. Angela has been honored to have been one of the charter members and contributing authors of the LEAN Families Program, as it is the only Joint Commission-certified weight management program in the United States. Angela played a pivotal role in the research acquired at LEAN Families and she presented their initial findings on behavior change’s role in pediatric overweight this year’s Weight Management Dietetic Practice Group’s Annual Symposium. Angela is already proving to be a dietetic leader in the media. Her passion for promoting the registered dietitian as the nutrition expert has resulted in her formation of the Dallas Dietetic Association’s (DDA’s) Media Bureau in 2007. She is currently serving on the Media Bureau for the DDA and also as the Dallas/Fort Worth area Media Representative for the Texas Dietetic Association (TDA). Angela is the editor-in-chief for Nutrition Tidbits, a free monthly nutrition newsletter.
