What we do

The dietitian uses her or his knowledge of food, nutrition, and science to promote health, prevent disease and aid in the management of illnesses.  Dietitians assess the nutritional status of patients, calculate individual nutritional requirements, design a plan of care to meet these nutritional requirements and educate patients and families on therapeutic and health promoting diets or nutrition support.
