Sally Squires, MS, is an award-winning medical journalist, who spent 24 years at the Washington Post. There, she created the multimedia, nationally syndicated LEAN PLATE CLUB™ (LPC) column.
Journalism has changed, of course. So in 2008, Sally joined Powell Tate, the Washington, DC division of Weber Shandwick, where she is fortunate to have found another group of smart, interesting and creative colleagues. By day, she uses her graduate degree from Columbia University’s Institute of Human Nutrition and her communications expertise to provide strategic counsel to clients, who range from nonprofits to major corporations. By night, she translates the latest scientific results into simple, actionable information for readers.
This blog is her newest writing adventure. In it, you will find news and commentary about the latest developments in nutrition, exercise and wellness. There are tips, tools, resources and inspiring stories of people who have changed their habits with significant results. Also look for a dash of food history, because it helps explain what’s on our plates today.
Here’s the promise to you, dear readers: The information included will be science based. Where possible, there will be simple, actionable steps to implement these new findings. And all the views expressed here are those solely of Sally Squires and not of her employer or its clients.
The hope is to share the goals of eating smart, one meal at a time, and moving more daily as a way to stay as healthy as possible–for life.
