While research continues to show that a nutritious diet can be the best medicine for reducing the risk of disease, there are hundreds of health claims, which can be confusing and overwhelming. RDNs work one-on-one with patients to develop personal eating plans for specific nutritional needs and lifestyles. Our RDNs provide counseling for many conditions, including cancer, diabetes, eating disorders, cardiovascular disease, and gastrointestinal problems, as well as for personal wellness, prenatal and pediatric care, sports nutrition, and weight management.
