Brittany Depaula RD, LDN, CNSC

Senior Clinical Nutrition Specialist, Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Boston Children’s Hospital, Boston, MA

I completed my undergraduate degree at Framingham State University, dietetic internship at the University of Virginia and pediatric nutrition fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital. I have specialized in pediatric intestinal failure for the past 12 years. Aside from patient care I manage quality improvement initiatives on vitamin D supplementation and documentation of oral intake in this population. I am co-founder of our centers patient family education committee and have assisted with the creation of several education materials. I pioneered our team’s current micronutrient monitoring process including the development of a lab monitoring protocol. I am actively researching tolerance of blenderized tube feedings in pediatric intestinal failure patients and its impact on growth and parenteral nutrition support.
