Debra Benfield, RDN
Experience: I provided medical nutrition therapy at Wake Forest University School of Medicine for many years and was a faculty member of the School of Medicine for 10 of those years. I was also in private practice part-time during those years with a transition to full time private practice in 2005. My experience also includes being a chief clinical dietitian in a hospital setting, clinical nutritionist for Student Health at North Carolina School of the Arts, nutritionist in Surry County's public health clinic, clinical research dietitian for Wake Forest University School of Medicine and a nutritional therapist in both an addiction treatment center and a behavioral health center. I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in 2012 with Anna Guest-Jelley of Curvy Yoga, specializing in modifying yoga for all bodies.
