Bianca Davis

Bianca is a graduate student at D’Youville College, where she is in her last year of the combined (BS + MS) degree in dietetics. Her interest in dietetics is rooted in the various opportunities the field provides to improve the eating behaviors and food environments of disadvantaged groups worldwide. Through her academic studies, Bianca has gained extensive knowledge in nutrition, while developing skills in research, proposal writing, program design, and education. Her current research examines the intersection of environmental inequality through the lens of food environments, and the level of support food environments provide for healthful eating behavior. Bianca joined the Food Lab in the fall of 2019, prepared to strengthen her professional skills, build purposeful connections, and to manifest change. For leisure, Bianca enjoys adventure, urban farming, meditation, and documentaries on this extraordinary world. In the near future, she plans on pursuing her doctorate degree in a field that will further leverage her ability to intervene the shortcomings of our local and global food systems.
