Nutrition and Weight Management

Our interdisciplinary team of providers, nurses and social workers offer crucial support for your nutrition and weight management goals.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity is common, serious and costly, affecting more than one-third of all U.S. adults. Obesity-related conditions are some of the leading causes of preventable death, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. The link between diet, obesity  and chronic disease has long been recognized, making nutrition and weight management critical for good health.

Healthy eating habits at any stage of life are important. But if developed early on, healthy eating will be easier as an adult. We offer individual nutrition counseling at all of our sites to improve the overall health and wellness of our patients.  Our staff works collaboratively with our patients to set goals and support their progress.
We have a healthy cooking class for patients for patients with chronic conditions where nutrition plays a major role. We have a nutrition focused class for patients with diabetes. Yoga classes and a walking club are also offered at some of our health centers to support the nutrition and weight management goals of our patients.
