Kovler Welcomes a New Team Member, Recognizes Dietitian DayPosted: March 14, 2012
It gives me great pleasure to introduce the newest member of the Kovler team, Ms. Julia Socke, RD, LDN, CDE…a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator. It only makes sense to make this introduction on what is also National Nutrition Month AND Registered Dietitian Day, “commemorating the dedication of RDs as advocates for advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world!”
Throughout her career, Julia has worked with patients of all ages with various dietary needs. Her areas of focus include diabetes, adult and pediatric weight management and community nutrition.
“The Kovler Diabetes Center is one of the most well-respected diabetes centers in the Chicagoland area. I feel honored to be a part of such an amazing center. In the short time I’ve been at Kovler, I’ve witnessed firsthand the exceptional teamwork between our physicians, nurses, MAs, coordinators, and Certifed Diabetes Educators that makes Kovler the special place it is, ” said Julia.
As a member of our team, Julia will act as both a diabetes educator and the outreach coordinator, supporting Kovler’s satellite clinics and working with both children and adults to effectively manage their diabetes. Additionally, she will participate in various nutrition and diabetes lectures and events and is a member of both the Chicago Dietetic Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Julia also enjoys spending as much time as possible with friends and family. And as a former athlete, she stays active in organized volleyball leagues and loves trying new restaurants around Chicagoland.
You’ll be hearing from Julia throughout National Nutrition Month and beyond, as she’s an incredible resource for the diabetes community and for our patients. On behalf of the entire Kovler crew, we welcome Julia to our team!
