Beth Glace, MS

Research Associate/Sports Nutritionist

Beth has worked as a Sports Nutritionist and Research Associate at the Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma, at Lenox Hill Hospital, for more than 30 years. She has extensive experience in nutrition counseling, as well as performing fitness testing for professional and recreational athletes.

Much of her responsibilities include designing, implementing and presenting research in the area of metabolism, exercise and nutrition. Areas of research have included elucidating the source of exercise-induced fatigue, eating disorders in athletes, metabolic rate in ballet dancers, and nutrition and blood values in ultra-marathoners.

Beth is a competitive runner with particular interest in cross country and track events. She is Vice-President of the Shawangunk Runners in New Paltz, NY, and directs numerous trail and cross country races throughout the year. Beth also owns and competes with horses in dressage and eventing.
