Michelle 'Shelley' McGuire

Dr. Michelle "Shelley" McGuire teaches in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Washington State University. She is the author of several published articles, and specializes in the research of understanding of how breastfeeding and lactation influence both maternal and child health and well-being. Recent research has focused on investigating how maternal diet influences milk fat content and, thus, energy intake and fatty acid consumption of the breastfeeding child. Dr. McGuire has been teaching the basic nutrition course for several years and has a strong appreciation of the course, its goals and objectives, and the variety of student needs. This experience coupled with her strong writing and research background has helped her create an exciting and refreshing text for the introductory nutrition course.

Dr. Beerman teaches in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University. She is the author of several published articles assessing the impact of bioactive components in soy (isoflavones) on health parameters in menopausal women. More recently, she has been studying the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in rural, impoverished regions of Guatemala, and efficacy of a novel approach to improve iron status in women and children. Dr. Beerman teaches the 300-level nutrition course for health-related majors (Nutrition, Health, and Disease), as well as courses related to women's health (Biology of Women). She also teaches a course in teaching methodology (Teaching Methods in Higher Education) for graduate students. Since joining the faculty at Washington State University in 1989, she has taught more than 12,000 students and has been the recipient of several college and university teaching awards. Dr. Beerman's years of teaching experience, combined with her wide knowledge base in nutrition, health sciences and educational pedagogy, has helped create this innovative introductory nutrition text.

Marie Dunford

MARIE DUNFORD, Ph.D., R.D., has been involved in sports nutrition since the mid-1980s. In 1985, while a faculty member at California State University, Fresno, she created the curriculum for an upper-division course entitled "Nutrition and the Athlete." She taught the course for a total of 16 years, during which time she interacted with thousands of student athletes. This direct exposure to nutrition and exercise science majors and NCAA Division I athletes helped her to develop an understanding of how students learn and the sports nutrition topics that are the most difficult for students to master. In addition to this textbook, Dr. Dunford has written three other books and numerous online sports nutrition courses for nutrition and exercise professionals. She is an active member of SCAN—the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutritionists—a dietetic practice group of the American Dietetic Association, and a member of the American College of Sports Medicine. She is an avid recreational tennis player and a struggling student of French.
