Abby Hall, RD

Medical Advisor

Abby Hall is a metabolic dietitian in the Medical and Molecular Genetics Department at IU Health Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, IN, United Sates. Abby has been a dietitian for 12 year and has specialized in inborn errors of metabolism, including homocystinuria and other methylation defects, for the past nine. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University with a major in Nutrition and Dietetics. She then completed her dietetic internship with a focus in community nutrition at University of Buffalo – State School of New York in Buffalo, NY. After her internship in 2009, Abby moved back to her home state of Indiana and began practicing as a licensed and registered dietitian in a position focused on adult and pediatric nutrition support. During her internship and first job, Abby discovered a passion for working and caring for pediatrics and a desire to specialize in a specific area in nutrition. When the opportunity arose to join the metabolic team at Riley, Abby jumped at the idea and has never looked back.

Through her time as a metabolic dietitian at Riley Hospital for Children, Abby has had the opportunity to work with an extensive variety of metabolic conditions through every stage of life. From newborns and their families to the elderly patients who some pre-date the technologies of newborn screening, Abby has recognized the uniqueness of the field she is in and the ever-evolving care of patients with inborn errors. The special bond created with families and patients is one of the most rewarding pieces to her position.  One day she is walking a family through mixing a special formula for the first time, and the next she is celebrating a high school graduation. Abby truly appreciates the connection and her unique position to support and work with these families to provide the best care possible.
