Atlanta, GA - April 30, 2012
Atlanta Center for Reproductive Medicine
(ACRM) is providing nutritional counseling, support and resources for
patients as part of its comprehensive approach to fertility treatment.
Joining the practice, May 7, 2012 to lead its nutrition program, is
Tracey Singh, RD, LD, CDE.
With almost a decade of experience, Singh will help ACRM patients understand
that making positive lifestyle changes can be an enjoyable, rewarding
process that will ultimately lead them to reach their desired health outcomes.
Beyond individualized nutritional support for fertility patients, Tracey
will also lead nutritional classes in a group setting at ACRM's main
office in Atlanta, GA. Participants in these classes will learn how to
improve their nutrition and overall health with nutrition foundations,
lifestyle transformations and balancing nutrition in everyday life. Tracey
will work with patients to help them achieve their ideal weight or Body
Mass Index (BMI) as weight in both women and men can have significant
impact on reproductive health, infertility treatment success and pregnancy risk.
"I am extremely excited to be a part of the ACRM team", comments
Tracey Singh, RD, LD, CDE. "My passion for nutrition coupled with
my desire to work with ACRM's patient population makes this opportunity
very appealing to me. My goal is to compliment and extend ACRM's existing
services by providing nutrition and wellness counseling that ultimately
helps each patient reach their personal goals."
Singh earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Dietetics from University
of Wisconsin-Madison and her certification as Registered Dietitian from
Emory University in Atlanta. Her passion for nutrition has led Singh to
work in a variety of health care settings including in-patient, out-patient,
and community settings. Singh began her career as a clinical dietitian
at Emory University Hospital in 2005.
In 2007, her interest in disease management and prevention led Singh to
pursue an opportunity at an outpatient health care company, where she
provided one-on-one nutrition counseling to patients. Here, Singh developed
a love for counseling and earned her certification in diabetes education
(CDE) as well as a certification in adult weight management.
Recently, Singh has led research initiatives sponsored by Emory University
to promote health and wellness programs within South Asian communities
in the United States. She has also designed and launched international
media campaigns in India targeting people at risk for heart disease and diabetes.
Singh is completing her Master of Public Health at Emory University, graduating
in May 2012.
"One year ago we added Nutritional Counseling in house, and we have
seen tremendous benefits for our patients", states
Lisa A. Hasty, MD, infertility doctor and founding partner of ACRM. "With this additional
education and support, patients have a greater chance of achieving a healthy
pregnancy and a healthy baby."
