Metro New York’s leading healthcare foodservice executives met at the Sheraton LaGuardia last month for the AHF-NY 2018 Educational Seminar and Vendor Exhibition with a theme of: “Challenges and Changes in the Healthcare Foodservice Industry”.

After a warm welcome from AHF-NY president Andria Coleman (EMBA, MS, RDN, CDN), the group was challenged and stimulated by a wide diversity of topic and speakers. Morning sessions at the AHF-NY 2018 Educational Seminar and Vendor Exhibition included presentations on Enhancing Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) that was moderated by  Dr. Christina Lynn Sherry, PhD, RD, MBA, Medical Science Liaison, Abbott Nutrition. Pepsi Co Director of Culinary Research Kyle Shadix (MS, RD, CRC) then followed with a session focused on Food & Beverage Pairings: Based on the Collective Wisdom of the World.

The afternoon curriculum kicked off with author Steve Dragoo’s unique take on motivation. He brought AHF attendees inside his new book: Sing: The Team Building Karaoke. Over the span of his career, he has worked with major retailers and for two of the nation’s largest food companies. Life lessons from the Karaoke Stage brings together anecdotes and practical ideas for a richer life and better work performance from his 30-plus years of industry experience and 20 years performing on the Karaoke stage.
