In a world of social media influencers, nano influencers, and celebrities, who do your patients turn to for health and nutrition information? What do today’s health-focused patients seek?
On the podcast let’s talk to social psychologist Dr. Shelley Balanko and gain interesting insight to better understand where our patients are today and what they are looking for in terms of health information.
I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Shelley Balanko speak in Toronto about snacking, health and wellness trends. Her information was really insightful. I knew you’d want to hear it and better understand where your patients are seeking information.
Dr. Balanko earned her PhD in applied social psychology from the University of Windsor. Currently, she is the Senior Vice President for The Hartman Group whose anthropologists, social scientists and business analysts have been immersed for years in the study of food and beverage culture.

Some people find cooking relaxing while others find it extremely stressful, which is why Le Creuset came out with a collection called The New Calm. The line includes four tranquil shades, Meringue, Sea Salt, Fig, and Coastal Blue all designed to sooth any stress you may feel about cooking dinner. Last weekend I took out my Fig Dutch oven to cook up a batch of Potato, Leek and Chickpea Soup.
The soup was simple yet elegant and just the right speed for a cold winter’s day in front of the fireplace. If you want to cut the sodium try reduced sodium broth and cook beans from scratch. The combination of butter and oil give this soup it’s velvety texture and rich flavor but, using all olive oil would also work well. Regina Ragone, MS, RDN
