Conversation 146: The Story, Journey and Passion of Christina Boehme, RD, LD
“It’s really important to be there and be an advocate for older adults. It’s interesting to see the science and the food and nutrition impact on their quality of life. It’s amazing to me. Who knew after 80 years of life you would need a dietitian?” Christina Boehme, RD, LD
Today’s conversation is with Christina Boehme, a registered dietitian who is passionate about working and caring for our elderly population for a program called PACE.
Christina and I met this spring at the Nebraska Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and she shared with me the unique and special area she is currently working in called PACE, which stands for the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. PACE is a specialized managed care program that provides preventive care, primary care, social services, therapeutic recreation, acute and long-term care services and Christina is passionate and thriving in her current position. In our conversation today, she shares more about her work with PACE and how this a great opportunity for registered dietitians.
Please enjoy my conversation with Christina.
