You have a dietitian as part of your health care team at the Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics. The dietitian works with your Nurse Practitioner and allied health team to address your unique needs.
Your visit with the dietitian will include a nutritional assessment to learn about your eating habits and lifestyle, as well as a review of medical history, medications, supplements, and complementary medicines. Together, you create a nutrition care plan that supports your health needs and goals.
You can connect with the dietitian any time. Call to book an appointment or speak with your Nurse Practitioner for further information.
