About

What will the dietitian do?

The role of a dietitian is to work with you and your care team to provide you with the tools and resources to take control of your health.
 
At each session, your dietitian will:
  • Address your medical and nutrition history
  • Discuss your eating and nutrition habits and behaviors
  • Provide education for improving and/or maintaining nutrition practices to help meet your health care goals.
  • Develop a set of personalized goals. These goals take into account lifestyle, previous nutrition background, and eating habits, financial concerns, readiness for change, and your own priorities.
In order to help maintain nutrition progress, your dietitian may encourage a return appointment. During this appointment, previous goals are reviewed and revised, new goals are established, and ongoing education is provided. 
 
These follow-up consults provide support while encouraging gradual change in your lifestyle that increases your long-term success.
