Clinical Nutrition Services at Upland Hills Health go well beyond a visit from a dietitian during a hospital stay.
Our Registered Dietitians work hand-in-hand with your physicians to ensure you have a successful, individualized plan for making the right food and lifestyle choices for you. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Registered Dietitian’s are the food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. The expertise, training and credentials that back a registered dietitian are vital for promoting positive lifestyle choices.
When you need food and nutrition information based on fact or need to know how a healthy diet improves health and fights disease—rely on qualified professionals in the field.
Registered dietitians draw on their experience to develop a personalized nutrition plan for individuals of all ages. They are able to separate facts from fads and translate nutritional science into information you can use. A Registered Dietitian can put you on the path to a healthy weight, eating healthfully and reducing your risk of chronic disease.
Individual sessions and group classes are available, depending on your needs. And, most nutritional education is covered by major insurance plans if you have a physician referral.
Our dietitians also play an integral role at Upland Hills Health’s Center for Medical Weight Loss Clinic, Dialysis Center, Nursing and Rehab Center and in community education programs. We also feature an American Diabetes Association recognized diabetes education program consisting of individual and group nutrition education sessions.
