Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Lisa McDowell, MS, RD, Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, Director of Clinical Nutrition and Wellness at St. Joseph Mercy Health System in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and team dietitian for the Detroit Red Wings.

She is also involved with St. Joseph Mercy Health System’s partnership with the Detroit Lions, Red Wings, Tigers and Pistons to help brand healthy food choices at the stadium venues – bringing healthy nutrition into the community “Food is both medicine and a secret sports weapon,” says McDowell. Tune in to hear some of her tips and favorite foods for fueling peak sports performance.
