I am excited to share with everyone that Salome Pemberton and Leah Galitzdorfer, two of our very own nutritionists at NYEG have both been selected to present at this years National Child Nutrition Conference.
Salome and Leah are both distinguished in their field especially in early childhood and community nutrition and we are beyond absolutely proud of both of them and their accomplishments.
Leah and Salome provide support to many of NYEG's agencies across NYC and the work they do certainly extends beyond just early childhood.
