Dr. Sue is passionate about her volunteer teaching at Can Tho University of Medicine and Pharmacy in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. There is no nutrition or dietetic profession in Vietnam. As part of the Medical Education Exchange Team (www.meet-international.org), she teaches clinical nutrition to medical faculty and students, and is beginning the development of hospital-based clinical nutrition teams in the region. This is an enormous job, and anyone interested in joining Dr. Sue with this teaching endeavor should please contact her directly.
While she’s not passionately promoting healthy nutrition and fitness, Dr. Kleiner stays in a good mood by spending time in the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest with her husband and daughters. She loves lifting, cycling, yoga, dancing, hiking, playing piano, cooking, traveling, and cozying up with a good book and hot cocoa in the evening to let the intensity of the day slide away.
