Nutrition Therapy and Education
Food fact or fiction?
We know the media constantly bombards you with information about your health. Registered dietitians (RDs) separate facts from fads, and give you the tools and knowledge you need to lose weight, eat healthy and reduce your risk of disease.
 
What can a registered dietitian do for you?
Our RDs will develop a personalized nutrition plan that works with your lifestyle. RDs help you make positive lifestyle choices using scientifically proven methods and information. RDs can teach you:
  • To make healthy decisions about what foods you eat
  • To understand food claims and labels
  • Eating techniques that increase your total wellness and fight disease
  • Choices that allow you to enjoy a better quality of life
  • Meal planning and lifestyle techniques to help you improve your health or control an existing medical condition
  • How to save money by reducing your health care costs

Whether you have a specific objective—such as losing weight or reducing high blood pressure—or are looking for overall ways to stay fit and healthy, an RD can provide you with timely, accurate and reliable information.
