Alicia Farhat, MPH, RD
Brighter Bites, Dallas
When Alicia Farhat decided to immigrate to Louisiana from Venezuela in the summer of 2005, the state welcomed her with Hurricane Katrina within weeks of her arrival. In addition to navigating her way through a devastating natural disaster, Alicia needed to learn English and American culture. By the time she was ready for college and grad school, she chose to study nutritional sciences at Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) and public health nutrition at the University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston. Alicia combines her experiences as an immigrant with her knowledge of health promotion and nutrition to lead a fantastic team in Dallas.
