Diabetes and Nutrition Education

Nutrition Education Program

Healthy eating plays a major role in managing many health conditions. A registered dietitian can help one develop an eating plan that best meets their nutrition needs.

  • Education provided includes heart healthy eating, weight management, kidney disease, congestive heart failure and other topics.
  • Individual instruction is provided by a registered dietitian (RD).
  • A support person is encouraged to attend the appointment with you.

A doctor order is required for diabetes and nutrition education. For more information about the program, please contact us at one of our locations, and we will be glad to assist you.
