Faculty Spotlight: It’s Tea Time with Dr. Stote

Posted by Diana Hawkins on 21st August 2011

Black Tea. Pekoe Tea. Green Tea. Want to know the difference? Curious which is caffeinated or heart healthy?

Ask Dr. Kim Stote, Ph.D, MPH, RD, an assistant professor and academic area coordinator for health services at SUNY Empire State College’s Center for Distance Learning.

Pictured here during the 2011 Saratoga Arts Fest, Stote delivered a 45-minute presentation (with samples and scones) to educate participants on the history, differences, and healing benefits of tea.

Dr. Stote’s research interests include include nutrition science, public health and biomedical research methodology. She holds a Ph.D. in Nutrition Science from Syracuse University, a Masters of Public Health from the University of South Florida, and a Bachelors of Science in Human Nutrition from the SUNY College at Oneonta. Stote also completed a dietetic internship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

“I love my job! It allows me to combine my background as an educator, clinical practitioner, and researcher to best serve adult learners at SUNY Empire State College. Our students have various backgrounds with both traditional and nontraditional experiences. It’s a wonderful opportunity to work with such a diverse population,” she said.
