Renal RD Team


President & CEO
Donna L Morton de Souza, MPH, RD

BioDonna's renal dietitian experience in hemodialysis clinics revealed the need for more innovative educational tools. Over the years, she developed and field tested a variety of activities to help educate and motivate her dialysis patients to adhere to their strict regimen. Success was measured by improved lab values, patient acceptance and improved morale within the clinic.

She was encouraged to make her creative educational tools available to all renal professionals. This resulted in the publication of two books and a variety of useful visuals and games.

Donna graduated with a Masters in Public Health from Loma Linda University, California and received her undergraduate degree from California State University, Los Angeles. She also earned a Culinary Arts...

...degree from Johnson and Wales University in Florida. Her previous experience includes working as a corporate dietitian for a major cruise line, pharmaceutical sales, university instructor, wellness counselor and cooking instructor.

Donna is a dynamic national and international speaker on strategies for patient compliance. She has presented and conducted numerous workshops at the National Kidney Foundation's clinical meetings and other professional organizations including ESRD, CRN and AAKP.

If you would like Donna to present at your upcoming meetings please contact us.

In 2002, Donna Morton de Souza, MPH, RD was the recipient of the National Kidney Foundation of Florida's "Exemplary Practice Award for Outstanding Service to Kidney Patients"
