Barbara Dehn, RN, MS, NP

As a practicing Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and a nationally recognized health expert, Barbara Dehn, "Nurse Barb," realizes the need for and the importance of informing couples and women, nationwide, of all aspects of women's health. With more than 20 years of experience listening to and caring for women, Nurse Barb breaks down complicated health matters into a comprehensible fashion by personally showing the positive effects of strict exercise and dieting through her daily activities and healthy food selection.

"I go to the YMCA three times a week, and every weekend I hike in the hills in Silicon Valley with my teenage son," said Nurse Barb. "I only eat whole grains, simple carbohydrates, and have a vegetable garden so that I get five to six helpings of vegetables every day."

She believes that supplements are part of good health. She takes a woman's daily vitamin, Vitamin D and calcium.
