More About the Author

Over the course of her career, Constance Brown-Riggs has established herself as an expert on the subject of nutrition, diabetes and the cultural issues that impact the health and health care of people of color. She is not only versed in the science of medical nutrition, but also has an active nutrition counseling practice through which she sees hundreds of patients. Her ability to translate her academic and clinical knowledge into clear, understandable terms have made her a nationally renowned, sought-after speaker, educator and author. She is passionate about creating opportunities to spread the word about health and nutrition, and developing educational tools which shorten the cultural distance between patients and caregivers. Every aspect of her work supports that mission

As president and owner of CBR Nutrition Enterprises, she operates a multi-pronged company that focuses on providing complete medical nutrition therapy to patients. Her enterprise also provides training and education for laypeople and health-care professionals, as well as consultation services to industry, physicians, fitness centers, churches and other corporate and community organizations.

She was also the nutrition consultant for health-related books including Lighten Up: The HealthQuest 30-Day Weight-Loss Program (Amistad, 2001), The ESSENCE Total Makeover Book (Three Rivers Press, 1999) and contributed to Food, Cuisine, and Cultural Competency for Culinary, Hospitality, and Nutrition Professionals (Jones and Bartlett, April 2010).

Brown-Riggs has written for publications including POZ and IMARA Woman magazines and contributed to newsletters for the American Dietetic Association. She is also frequently quoted as a featured expert in national magazines such as Essence, Heart & Soul, Real Health, Diabetic Cooking, Diabetic Living and in newspapers across the country. Brown-Riggs serves as an expert for dLife.com, the online companion to CNBC's premier diabetes program and posts to the "R.D.s Weigh In" blog (www.eatright.org/blog).

Brown-Riggs has been invited to appear as a keynote speaker, presenter or panelist at conferences and professional meetings across the country for organizations such as the American Dietetic Association, Empire State Medical Association, American Academy of Physical Therapy, University of South Carolina, Dothan Alabama Leisure Services, North Carolina Dietetic Association, American Diabetes Association, St. Louis Association of Diabetes Educators and New York State Office of Children & Family Services. She is also a speaker for PESI Healthcare, providing continuing education seminars across the country.

Her professional honors include 2009 Distinguished Dietitian from the New York State Dietetic Association, 2007 Diabetes Educator of the Year from the American Dietetic Association Diabetes Care and Education Practice Group and 2004 Dietitian of the year from the Long Island Dietetic Association. Brown-Riggs is a past president of the New York State Dietetic Association and currently a national media spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.

Format: Paperback
As a registered dietitian, I am always on the lookout for practical, user-friendly books to recommend to friends, clients, and the lay public. Here, Constance Brown-Riggs has come up with a winner. This book is a comprehensive resource for those who are plagued by or at high risk for diabetes. Addressing the particular needs and preferences of African Americans, the author provides instruction and education without being preachy for those who wish to take charge of their lives and fight diabetes with diet. She makes following a healthful, disease-fighting diet for life easy. The exchange lists are particularly helpful. Highly recommended!

I found "Eating Soulfully and Healthfully with Diabetes" a wonderful resource with clear-cut guidelines to follow for African Americans and other people with type 2 diabetes. Constance Brown-Riggs made each chapter build on the last, answering many common questions. As a registered dietitian, I highly recommend this book--a first step in understanding the important dietary and lifestyle factors and learning practical and useful diet and food information.
