By Trina Adler, Program Leader — Health and Nutrition

On January 18, Family Development welcomed Nikki Johnson as the first Area Community Health and Nutrition Specialist serving eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota in the Red River Valley. This is a joint position between Minnesota and North Dakota and will focus on chronic disease prevention and policy, systems, and environmental changes that promote improved health outcomes.

Nikki has a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from North Dakota State University, Fargo, and a Master of Science degree in Health Promotion Management from Nebraska Methodist College, Omaha. Nikki has served as the Youth Nutrition Agent in Cass County, ND, since 2012. Prior to her work in North Dakota, Nikki was a community nutrition educator for the University of Minnesota in Clay, Becker, and Ottertail counties.
