Nutrition Reviews in Gastroenterology The Series: An Homage and a Transition

Read Article

Over the years, the series, Nutrition Issues in Gastroenterology, has been a valuable resource for reviews of current evidencebased research in gastrointestinal (GI) nutrition. The series has elevated the status of, and attention to, medical nutrition therapies for GI disorders. One might argue that it has fostered the growth of GI/Nutrition as a discipline for physicians and dietitians alike. The series has solidified that nutrition has an essential place in the literature to advance nutrition research, education, and practice in gastroenterology.

The founding editor, Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RD, has built a library from the series. Since 2003, over 200 articles have been published in the Journal of Practical Gastroenterology. We are thankful for her passion, dedication, and diligence towards the series that has served to counteract misinformation and give practical applications to integrate into clinical practice. Through the years, Carol Rees Parrish, MS, RD has recruited countless interdisciplinary authors to contribute their knowledge and nutrition expertise on a variety of topics. It takes a village!

Starting January 2023, the baton will pass and so begins a new era of the Practical Gastroenterology Nutrition Series. As the new editors for the series, now called Nutrition Reviews in Gastroenterology, we will continue to strive to publish evidencebased nutrition reviews to provide updates for clinical practice. We look forward to our new role.

We welcome your ideas. If there are GI-related nutrition topics of interest to the readers of Practical Gastroenterology, please contact the series editors, Neha D. Shah MPH, RD, CNSC, CHES at and Elizabeth Wall, MS, RDN-AP, CNSC at
