Registered Dietitian Wendy Beckman

It’s common knowledge that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, lean protein and whole grains promotes better physical health. But does your diet affect your mood? Registered Dietitian Wendy Beckman will share insights into that and other questions about nutrition and mental health during a virtual discussion on Monday, March 22. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The 3 p.m. program is free and presented by Hudson Valley Community College’s Cultural Affairs Program. Please visit for information on how to access and join the program.

All are welcome to join and hear more about the link between nutrition and mental health and what the latest research reveals or conceals about diet, food insecurity and mental health. For example, is it true that certain nutrients can cure depression?

Wendy Beckman, MS, RD, CDN, is a registered dietitian with the New York State Office for the Aging. She has over 14 years' experience working in acute- and long-term care settings. Beckman currently oversees the state’s SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education program for adults and maintains a private consulting practice in Columbia County.
