MPH/RD Student, UNC-CH Gillings School of Global Public Health
Liza is a second year MPH/RD graduate student at UNC-CH Gillings School of Global Public Health in the Nutrition department. She is interested in practicing as a clinical dietitian in the eating disorder field after graduating. In terms of research, she wants to look more into the triggers and development of disordered eating behaviors, especially in men, and will be working on a study looking at effective and ineffective parenting strategies with Dr. Zucker’s lab. Before coming to UNC-CH, Liza completed her B.A. in International and Global Studies with a minor in Biology at Sewanee: The University of the South. There, she worked in free medical clinics in rural Appalachia and developed a diabetes education course and internship for Sewanee students. She also has a background in public health research through UNC’s Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. When not in the lab, Liza enjoys being outside and active with her friends and black lab, Mojo, as well as cooking.
