Published May 31, 2024

CHICAGO – Harlivleen "Livleen" Gill, MBA, RDN, LDN, FAND, on June 1 begins her one-year term as the 2024-2025 President of the Academy Nutrition and Dietetics, the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals.

Registered dietitian nutritionist Gill is president and CEO of Apostle Group LLC, a consulting company that provides innovative solutions for clients in health care, food and nutrition. She also is CEO of The Wholesome Village, Inc., a community-driven 501(c)(3) non-profit centered on equitable food access. Her areas of expertise include diabetes, health care payment and reimbursement, food as medicine, malnutrition in older adults, and women's health.

"The Academy is leading the effort on the Dietitian Licensure Compact legislation that will expand access to nutrition care, improve public safety and allow licensees to practice across state lines," Gill said. "The Academy is also a proud champion of the Medical Nutrition Therapy Act which, if passed, would provide RDNs with more opportunities for reimbursement while also addressing the gaps in care for our country's seniors who only have access to MNT for diabetes and renal disease. It is an exciting time to serve as president of the Academy, and I look forward to working with all practitioners to advance these important priorities."

Gill was a private practice nutrition consultant for more than 20 years and served as food and nutrition services director and outpatient dietitian at health care centers in Maryland. She was previously treasurer of the Academy, served as president of the Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, is a past member of the Academy's Nutrition Services Payment Committee, and was the public policy coordinator for the Maryland affiliate dietetic association.

Gill was a member of the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board, a member of Montgomery County's Seniors Health and Wellness Advisory Board, and president of the Seven Locks Elementary School Parent Teacher Association. She also served as the Academy representative on the CMS WAVE 4 Chronic Disease and Diabetes Subcommittee.

Gill earned her undergraduate degree from Punjab University and a graduate degree from Punjabi University in India. She completed her coordinated program in dietetics at SUNY Buffalo State and Howard University. Gill has a master's degree in business administration from the University of Maryland University College.
