About Professor Mercado:
Since I started teaching Health and Nutrition courses and working at Hostos C0llege, I, Prof. Mercado, have been approached countless times regarding weight loss, ways to improve eating and physical activity habits and health issues in general. As a Nutritionist/Dietitian by training and many years of experience counseling clients on these issues, I feel that it is my responsibility to find a way to respond to the needs of my students and colleagues. Thus the Healthy Hostos blog was born with the intention of providing a hub where the Hostos community can find answers and information related to health.
Hope you enjoy it!
