Dr. Michelle "Shelley" McGuire teaches in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Washington State University. She is the author of several published articles, and specializes in the research of understanding of how breastfeeding and lactation influence both maternal and child health and well-being. Recent research has focused on investigating how maternal diet influences milk fat content and, thus, energy intake and fatty acid consumption of the breastfeeding child. Dr. McGuire has been teaching the basic nutrition course for several years and has a strong appreciation of the course, its goals and objectives, and the variety of student needs. This experience coupled with her strong writing and research background has helped her create an exciting and refreshing text for the introductory nutrition course.

Dr. Beerman teaches in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Washington State University. The author of several published articles, she specializes in research focusing on dietary practices of college students and the effects of isoflavones on health parameters in postmenopausal women.

Dr. Beerman teaches the introductory nutrition course for health majors, as well as courses in nutrition education, life cycle nutrition, and pathophysiology. Since joining the faculty at Washington State University in 1989, she has taught more than 10,000 students and has been the recipient of several teaching awards. Dr. Beerman's years of teaching experience, combined with her wide knowledge base in nutrition and health sciences, has helped create this innovative introductory nutrition text.
