About the Author Marie Dunford, Ph.D., R.D., has been involved in sports nutrition since the mid-1980's.

She taught the course for 16 years, during which time she interacted with thousands of student athletes. This direct exposure to nutrition and exercise science majors and NCAA Division I athletes helped her develop an understanding of how students learn and the sports nutrition topics most difficult for students to master. In addition to Nutrition for Sports and Exercise, Dr. Dunford has written three other books and taught numerous online sports nutrition courses for nutrition and exercise professionals. She is an active member of SCAN�the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutritionists�a dietetic practice group of the American Dietetic Association, and a member of the American College of Sports Medicine.
