Who: Hannah Perry
What: Registered Dietitian at Arkansas Children's Hospital and Freeman Family Medicine
Where: North Little Rock, AR
When: I graduated with a BS in Family and Consumer Sciences with an emphasis in Dietetics from Henderson State University, in 2016. I completed my Dietetic Internship at The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 2017.
Why: Growing up as a dancer, body image was a big deal for me and for my friends. Seeing other people struggle with body image and having that struggle myself, I was inspired to be healthy. I wanted to be kind to the body that I was given and the body that allowed me to dance, run and explore any area of life I desired. That led me to learning how to eat well and eventually to the field of dietetics.
Fun Fact: I still find time to perform in the Central Arkansas area as often as possible.
