Edward Bitok, DrPH, RDN
As young man growing up in Kenya, Edward often found himself in trouble with his father for “spending too much time in the kitchen” instead of outdoors working on the farm. Little did his father know that Edward's interest in food preparation would eventually lead to a career in Nutrition and Dietetics. He completed a double major in Food and Nutrition and Clothing and Textile from the University of Eastern Africa, and in 2008 he joined LLU where he completed a Masters degree in Nutrition & Dietetics and a Doctorate in Public Health Nutrition. As a Nutrition & Dietetics faculty, he enjoys teaching nutrition, research, and promoting plant-based diets as the most suitable for human and planetary health.
