SUNY Upstate nutrition professionals awarded certification

Four nutrition professionals at SUNY Upstate Medical University were awarded certification from the National Board of Nutrition Support Certification Inc. (NBNSC) after passing a comprehensive written examination.

Certifications were awarded to Konstanin Millerman, M.D., of Syracuse; Joyce Mackessy, of DeWitt; Tara Kerestes, of Liverpool; and Terry Podolak, of Auburn.

Upon passing the physician’s exam on nutrition support, Millerman is now credentialed as a Certified Nutrition Support Physician, CNSP. He is among fewer than 300 medical doctors nationally with this credential. Registered dietitians Joyce Mackessy and Terry Podolak were previously certified and completed the examination to maintain their certification.

NBNSC is the accrediting organization for the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN).
