Talia Martinez, who graduated from Graceland with her Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance (MSNHP) in 2022, collaborated with Assistant Professor of Health and Movement Science Melanie Mason, DAT, LAT, ATC, CES, PRES, and Assistant Professor of Allied Health James Geiselman, DC, to publish a review paper in the Nutritional Foundations journal.
The paper, titled “Weight Loss Using a Ketogenic Diet for Adults with Type II Diabetes” was part of her thesis project in the MSNHP program. It reviews the differences in weight loss between very low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets and diets using normal, smaller reductions in fat intake in adults with Type II Diabetes.
“I was always impressed by Talia’s enthusiasm and dedication to gaining a deep understanding of the material. She was eager to learn and worked hard to produce a high-quality article. I am so proud to be a part of her educational journey,” said Mason.
Martinez is the first graduate of the new MSNHP program and is setting a tone of excellence.
Dr. Robert Davidson, Associate Professor and Program Director of Nutrition and Human Performance said, “Graceland’s MSNHP program is rooted in scientific study, so to have one of our first graduates from the program published is further evidence of the high-quality education our students receive. Students are doing an excellent job in this program, and it is wonderful to see them following through on their work to have it published”.
“We are incredibly proud of Talia and her work in the MSNHP program. I feel fortunate to be able to share in her successes and help her reach her goals,” said Geiselman.
Graceland University’s MSNHP is an affordable and customizable program that provides students with a great opportunity to develop the necessary skills to advance their careers in the healthcare industry, as well as many others.
