Nutrition counseling (Medical Nutrition Therapy) is provided by Registered Dietitians at each of our Community Health Centers. Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) can help to lessen chronic disease risk, slow disease progression and reduce symptoms. MNT can reduce the need for medication, which can result in fewer doctor visits and less hospitalizations.
Ultimately, MNT can improve your overall quality of life.
