Cooking for DysphagiaThis spring, Erin Embry, clinical assistant professor and Sonja Molfenter, assistant professor, were both quoted in articles sharing how to cook for a loved one of any age who has dysphagia, a common swallowing disorder. Ms. Embry teaches a class during the January term with Lisa Sasson of Steinhardt’s Nutrition and Food Studies Department bringing together students from both CSD and nutrition to study dysphagia and compete in an “Iron Chef” type competition. Dr. Molfenter, whose research focuses on disordered swallowing, served as a judge at the competition.
