2023 Midwest Lung Cancer Summit Speaker
Carolyn Suerth Hudson, RDN, LD – Nutrition and Immune Boosters
Carolyn understands the impact nutrition has on health and well-being both professionally and personally. Working in a remote town in northern Canada, she saw the impact poor nutrition had on the health of people there. She then became committed to learning more and decided to pursue a degree in nutrition.
While in school, Carolyn became very ill. Doctors thought she had ulcerative colitis and later believed she had irritable bowel syndrome. To restore her health, Carolyn turned to nutrition and began eating real foods such as animal protein, healthy fats, vegetables, homemade yogurt and flax. Within a short period of time, her symptoms cleared and her energy returned.
Carolyn has over 30 years of experience in the nutrition field in the United States and Canada. As a lifelong learner, Carolyn recently completed her certification as a Well Coach to enable her to understand the struggles clients face and to help them make changes.
“I’m passionate about helping people improve their health and reach their potential through encouragement, exploration and motivation. I believe we all have the ability to make changes and improve our health with knowledge and support.”
Carolyn is a registered and licensed dietitian through the Minnesota Board of Nutrition and Dietetics. She received her BASc in Nutrition from Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and completed her internship at Toronto General Hospital. Carolyn is a past president of the Minnesota Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and past director on the board of the Dietitians of Canada.
