Erin M. Shyong MPH, RD, CDE is a Registered Dietitian with 10 years of experience working with pediatric patients. She enjoys helping children of all ages implement a healthy lifestyle. Erin understands that kids and families are busy, and it can sometimes be overwhelming to offer enough fruits and vegetables on a plate, let alone sit down as a family for a meal. But fear not, Erin can provide an abundance of ideas to help children grow strong in their busy environments.
Erin’s goal is to always work with the individual to offer realistic suggestions so meals are enjoyed, health is improved, and parents gain confidence in knowing that they are nourishing their families.
Erin provides medical nutrition therapy as a Certified Diabetes Educator to patients with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. She also has experience seeing patients with gastrointestinal disease, cardiac concerns, picky habits, celiac disease, special sports needs, and eating disorders.
Erin obtained an undergraduate degree in dietetics from James Madison University and a master’s degree in public health and nutrition from Hunter College. She also completed a dietetic internship at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
When not counseling on nutrition, Erin can be found on a pool deck coaching swimmers, running loops around the neighborhood, or chasing after her toddler.
She looks forward to working at Orangetown Pediatrics!
