Residing in Northern Kentucky, Dr. Brunacini is a family nurse practitioner with dietetic training and operates his virtual weight management consultatory practice, The Diet Doc. Having once been obese himself, Kevin lost and has kept off 121-pounds for nearly a decade and established himself as a health leader. He knew to help his patients stop yo-yo dieting and develop healthier lifestyles, he would need to do the same. In fact, this laid the foundation for his doctorate project, where he implemented a created weight maintenance behavior competency assessment to suggest a patient’s likelihood of maintaining his/her weight long-term. He serves multiple local, regional, and national health organizations in a consultatory role educating about primary care concepts and sustainable health behaviors. Aside from academics and medicine, Kevin is happily married, has two extremely spoiled black labs, and is an avid bass player and singer.
