Today’s Dietitian: Lisa Drayer: Nutrition, Media, and Beauty From the Inside Out
Though she started out as a premed student, Lisa Drayer, MA, RD, admits she hated the sight of blood and wasn’t sure how she would reconcile that fear as a doctor. She had always loved the analytical aspect of studying science—and she particularly loved the research—but she wasn’t crazy about the “hands-on” aspect of practicing medicine.
During the summer after her freshman year, Drayer met with a nutritionist about dropping the “freshman 15” she’d gained. She was intrigued by what she heard and learning that being a nutritionist involved research and a good understanding of the sciences. That’s when Drayer decided she would transfer from University of Michigan to Cornell University to pursue a degree in nutrition.
