Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year

Allison Thirion Blasius, MPH, RD, LD, FAND

Allison Thirion Blasius is a firm believer that you can't live a full life on an empty stomach. She has spent her short career working in pediatric nutrition in hospitals, in schools, and even at summer camp, where she attempts to achieve the impossible and find foods that both kids and their parents approve of. Most of Alli’s current and previous Academy leadership involves choosing who will win things, and she is excited to finally be on the receiving end of such a prestigious award. She lives in Cleveland, OH with her husband and their three elderly black cats.
