Cecilia Batchelor MS, RD, LDN, CDCES

Cecilia received her MS Nutrition from Meredith College, BS Nutrition from East Carolina University, and BA Spanish from Agnes Scott College. She received her training in the Emory University Hospital Dietetic Program, Certified Diabetes Education and Care Specialist in NC

Cecilia is a true advocate of the statement: good nutrition is a human right. When living in Jakarta, Indonesia, she witnessed food as a scarce commodity. Malnutrition and food insecurity are serious issues in Indonesia, mainly because of economic crises and the lack of food subsidies for urban poor and unemployed families. When she moved to the United States in 2002, she was stunned to see that the citizens of a country of limitless choices of enriched and fortified products were poorly nourished. The profound desire to provide health services to others has caused me to focus her attention on nutrition. Being with people teaching, educating, and working with adults and children has been a natural career choice. Her philosophy of care is to engage every patient individually and develop attainable food and activity goals to sustain long-term success.

Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her two Australian Shepherds, cooking ethnic cuisines, and competitively playing basketball and badminton.
