PANELISTS 

Dr. Tina Krupczak is a board-certified, licensed dietitian-nutritionist with a Masters in Nutrition & Integrative Health and a Doctorate of Clinical Nutrition. And if that wasn’t enough, she is also a childbirth educator and doula! In her private practice, she has helped countless individuals achieve their unique health goals. Tina conceived Concēv – a practice dedicated to proactive preconception planning that centers around the time before you’re officially “trying,” with a focus on changing men's and women’s lifestyle and nutrition habits to optimize both of their reproductive health. Don’t get her started on any of the following: how overlooked men’s reproductive health is, how people prefer trends to science or the short-sighted obsession with a woman’s D.O.B.
