Assistant Professor Gloria McNamara is co-coordinator of the School Health Education program within the Health Education department at BMCC.

A registered dietitian and New York State licensed nutritionist, she has lectured about health and nutrition issues for the past twenty years. She has a well-regarded reputation in public health programs, having served as director of two New York City Department of Health (NYCDOH) Projects; LEAN and Wellness At Work. Professor McNamara also directed the nutritional supplement program WIC (Women, Infants and Children) at the Maimonide Medical Center, and served as a consultant for both The Partnership for the Homeless and the NYC Office of School Food and Nutrition Services.

Professor McNamara taught at Brooklyn College before joining the faculty of BMCC. A Presidential Scholar whose research focuses on health entrepreneurism, she teaches nutrition and other health subjects. "Health educators not only promote awareness of health issues," she says, "they help remove barriers and establish supportive environments, enabling individuals to change behaviors impacting their health."
