Matthew Ruscigno, MPH, RD is a leading expert in the field of vegetarian nutrition. In addition to working with vegan clients and athletes, he is also a past chair of the Vegetarian Nutrition Dietary Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Matthew believes that health inequality and public health issues are a result of economic inequality, and that this inequality is partly driven by large corporations that put profit over people. Some of these same companies primarily sell highly-refined, unhealthy products. Their power and status and the ubiquity of their products greatly affects people’s nutrition choices, for the worse.
He became a co-founder of DFPI primarily to defend his professional credential.
