I am obsessed with improving health literacy and dispelling the myths and misunderstandings that are so detrimental to people's physical and mental wellbeing in today's world.

— Elaine Hinzey, RD

As a quality educator, Elaine now educates others about accreditation and the global impact that our performance has on the company and our members.

As a registered dietitian, Elaine has seen patients (both adults and children) on an outpatient basis, an inpatient basis, and in the community setting. She also taught group classes and facilitated classes for the KEYS to Control Diabetes Program (accredited by the American Diabetes Association). She also serves as a consulting dietitian for group homes and a local jail.
