and Spokeswoman for the New York Apple Country

Linda QuinnThe New York Apple Association has engaged registered dietitian Linda Quinn to be the association’s spokeswoman to promote the health benefits of New York apples.

Quinn will be appearing on TV and radio throughout the state discussing the groundbreaking Cornell University research which shows that apple phytonutrients can help fight cancer. She will also promote how apples improve breathing for asthma sufferers, can help prevent osteoporosis, aid in digestion and boost energy.
