Volunteer Spotlight

May 2017 - Natalie Thomas

My primary project with Feeding Matters has been to work with the team in order to investigate the statistics surrounding the prevalence of pediatric feeding disorders. Currently, there is an unsubstantiated percentage that I am investigating. We are working to find who first established this, when this statistic was most recently validated, how it was measured, and related information. We hope to eventually use this work to inform our additional prevalence research.

Volunteer activities for Feeding Matters:

I come from a family of nurses, which has given me an awareness and concern for public health, specifically, illness prevention and community education. That being said, my formal education is not actually medical or health related- I have a math degree and an English degree! I am also a certified yoga teacher. One of my personal goals is to someday be able to teach yoga classes in Spanish- but I have a lot of learning to do before I make that a reality!

What has been your interest in volunteering your time to Feeding Matters?

My favorite part of volunteering with Feeding Matters is connecting with organization members who work so passionately to make a difference for families experience feeding disorders or feeding problems. Thank you for letting me be a part of your team!
