Presence St. Mary's Hospital

Food for thought.

Our Registered Dietitians are food and nutrition experts. They are specially trained in helping you obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to make the best food choices for you. Medical Nutrition Therapy provided by a Registered Dietitian can help identify your specific needs and give you the tools you need to live a healthy life.

What we do.

Following a healthy diet is key for a healthy lifestyle and preventing disease. Registered Dietitians will assess your medical conditions, nutritional health, current food selections and eating habits. If major nutrition-related health issues are identified, dietary adjustment recommendations will be made to better your quality of life.
