Coleen Martin, MS, RD
Since the mid 1980’s my education, training and work has focused on community wellness initiatives that tackle issues of physical inactivity and poor nutrition. I have a Masters Degree from the University of Maryland in nutrition research and exercise physiology. In addition, I am a licensed, Registered Dietitian. As Program Manager for the MUSC Lean Team I oversee school and community based wellness initiatives and research aimed at reducing the incidence of childhood obesity in SC. Working with the MUSC Lean Team/Boeing Center for Children's Wellness gives me the opportunity to mentor pediatric medical residents, students, dietetic interns and graduate students seeking training in obesity prevention programs. I served as Chair of the Charleston Tri-County chapter of South Carolina Eat Smart Move More Coalition. The focus of ESMMSC is to reduce the prevalence of obesity among adults and children in our state through policy and system changes that support healthy eating and active living.
