About the Author

Sandra Parkington, MPH, RN is a registered nurse with over 28 years of experience in acute coronary care, occupational health, school health, hospice, cardiac clinical research, cardiac quality data analysis and quality improvement.

She chose to pursue a graduate degree in Public Health a few years ago in order to further research and develop an easy-to-use salt tracking system. She now shares her innovative ideas with you in order to help you better manage your salt intake. Her book on managing salt intake is called,
How to Keep Track of Your SALT Intake and is available for purchase through this web site.

A research article based on data from her thesis is published in the American Journal of Health Promotion (AJHP). The journal article entitled, "Measuring Salt Consumption to Guide Behavior Change in Applied Settings: A Critical Review" is the first comprehensive review to summarize and outline the potential errors in past research primarily because research has relied on indirect measures as opposed to direct measures of salt eating behavior.

The SalTrax™ method and system for tracking sodium intake was awarded a United States (U.S.)Patent in December 2012.

Ms. Parkington's expertise in dietary sodium and its impact on healthy living is reflected in her testimony at the FDA's hearing on sodium held November 29, 2007. Learn more about these interesting hearings on lowering sodium on her blog site.

Ms. Parkington is available for speaking engagements. Please contact her at srpark@saltrax.com.

The mission of HealthTrax, LLC is to to educate the general public in the simple and effective measurement of sodium intake, thereby reducing the consumption of dietary salt overall, assisting in the prevention and management of many chronic diseases.
