Heather Keller RD, PhD, is the Schlegel Research Chair in Nutrition & Aging and a faculty member at the University of Waterloo. Research programs cross the continuum of care and are focused on improving nutritional status, food intake and the mealtime experience of older adults. She is interested in developing and evaluating care processes that detect and treat older adults who are at nutritional risk or malnourished in all care settings. Her lab is also involved in developing and evaluating a variety of interventions focused on improving food and fluid intake for older adults, including those who are vulnerable, frail or living with dementia. Professor Keller has published widely and translates research into practice with practitioner tools and resources and advocates for improvements in nutrition care for all older adults.
