Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D.

Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., is director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting preventive medicine, especially better nutrition, and higher standards in research.

As director of nutrition education for PCRM, Ms. Levin researches and writes about the connection between plant-based diets and a reduced risk of chronic diseases. Through her work, she also addresses the need for nutrition guidelines that reflect PCRM’s Power Plate (fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains). In addition, Ms. Levin assists in teaching nutrition and health classes to participants in clinical studies exploring the links between diet and various medical conditions.

Ms. Levin received her Master of Science in Nutrition from Bastyr University in Seattle. There she focused on clinical counseling for a variety of nutrition-related issues. After receiving her master’s degree, Ms. Levin completed a dietetic internship at Bastyr University and became a registered dietitian. Her internship rotations included work on HIV/AIDS issues in the public health sector, clinical work at the Swedish Medical Center, and counseling of diabetic patients at the Joslin Diabetes Center. She also earned a specialty certification in sports dietetics from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Ms. Levin received the Charlotte Newcombe Scholarship twice during her post-graduate work at Hunter College in New York. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Before joining PCRM, Ms. Levin taught English to biomedical English majors at the Peking University Health Science Center in Beijing. Her lectures on nutrition to the school’s professors and students emphasized the healthfulness of the traditional plant-based Chinese diet.

Ms. Levin is also an avid runner and a VegRUN.org coach.
