Join us in congratulating Johnson Avenue Hy-Vee's Dietitian, Judy Fitzgibbons, MS, RD, LD on her retirement after 16 years of service. Judy was one of the first in-store dietitians hired in 2003 when Hy-Vee decided to make dietitians available to its customers in local stores.
During her years at Hy-Vee, Judy found great
reward in being in the store to help customers find foods they can eat and enjoy when they have special diet needs or want to prevent health problems. Her special interests in the fields of nutrition include diabetes, weight
management and challenges due to food intolerances. She especially has enjoyed showing new food ideas to viewers on KCRG and KFXA television news and offering nutrition programs for children. Judy is proud of the multi-summer
One-Step Kids' Garden Program the Johnson Avenue Hy-Vee offered in cooperation with Christ Church Presbyterian.
In 2008 Judy received the Recognized Outstanding Dietitian award from the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and was recognized again in 2016 as the recipient of the Iowa
Medallion award for her long-term support of the dietetics profession. Judy has been a registered dietitian for more than 40 years.
Please help us in wishing Judy congratulations on her long, happy and well-deserved retirement by joining us for a celebration at our Johnson Avenue Hy-Vee Market Grille on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019 from 3 to 6 p.m.
