At CrescentCare, we consider nutrition to be a vital part of overall health. Our registered dietitians/nutritionists (RDNs) provide Medical Nutrition Therapy an evidence-based medical approach to managing certain chronic conditions, such as diabetes, using an individually-tailored nutrition plan.
CrescentCare RDNs provide the following services:
One on One Nutrition Sessions: available to CrescentCare patients who are interested in a healthy lifestyle or desire to reach specific nutrition-related goals. With the One on One Education Sessions, the RDN evaluates a patient’s nutritional needs and health goals, counsels on eating habits and food choices, and creates an individualized nutrition plan.
Cooking classes: taught by registered dietitians where participants learn basic principles of nutrition and cooking skills in an interactive, hands-on class setting at our state of the art demonstration and teaching kitchen. Participants learn the healthy facts about certain foods and try different methods of food preparation that encourage a healthier lifestyle.
