Betsy Day, MS, RD, LDN
Betsy Day is the founder of Arkansas Health & Nutrition. She is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian and Nutritionist with a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Central Arkansas. Prior to founding Arkansas Health & Nutrition, Betsy led the weight loss program at UAMS.
Betsy didn’t set out to be a dietitian; she has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Colorado in Boulder. But when her youngest child was born with severe food allergies and she was unable to find a dietitian or doctor to help her manage his dietary needs, she decided to pursue a master’s degree in nutrition. She then completed her dietetic internship at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and received her Certificate in Training in Adult Weight Management Level I and Level II, as well as her Certificate of Training in Childhood and Adolescent Weight Management from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Betsy lives in Little Rock with her husband, Bryan, and their two children. Her daughter will be a junior this fall at Ole Miss and her son will be a freshman at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. The family loves spending time together outdoors and with their three Labradors – two of which are CARE rescues. In Betsy’s spare time, she enjoys running, cooking, reading and tending to her small vegetable and herb garden.
