Jackie Topol, MS, RD, CDN, CLT
Jackie Topol, MS, RD, CDN, CLT is a registered dietitian and culinary nutritionist whose mission is to help people use food-as-medicine to manage and reverse a variety of health conditions. Jackie holds a Masters degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University and has over 10 years of experience in culinary arts. Jackie began her career at one of the top hospitals in the nation, seeing a wide range of patients, from those who were looking to prevent disease to those with critical illnesses. To further her education, Jackie studied integrative medicine and nutrition for years through the Institute of Functional Medicine and the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy, among others.
In addition to her clinical work, Jackie has been leading health-focused cooking demos and classes for all age groups in a variety of settings for over 10 years. Jackie is passionate about teaching people about foods that prevent diseases and promote good health.
She co-founded the Culinary Nutrition Conference in 2017 because she and fellow RD Kristy Del Coro felt there was a gap in training for dietitians and health professionals. They expanded their offerings and recently changed their name to Culinary Nutrition Collaborative to reflect that.
In 2020 Jackie opened her private practice and currently sees all clients virtually. She is regularly quoted in the media and uses her Instagram platform (@the.prediabetes.dietitian) to communicate practical tips and easy recipes to people who have prediabetes.
