Transform Your Health by Understanding Micronutrients | Chris Masterjohn PhD

Chris Masterjohn holds a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Connecticut, having completed his degree in 2012. He later worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Comparative Biosciences department of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for two years until August 2014. Afterward, he served as an Assistant Professor of Health and Nutrition Sciences at Brooklyn College for two years, part of the City University of New York. Chris then made the decision to leave academia in the fall of 2016 and pursue entrepreneurship.
