Nutrition education and counseling

Our team of registered dietitian (RDs) provides clinical nutrition guidance to adults in the Central Pennsylvania area. An RD is a professional who specializes in applying food and nutrition knowledge to the prevention, management, and treatment of disease.

All of our staff has received special training, including a bachelor's degree, post-graduate practicum and, in some cases, a master's degree. Each of our dietitians has passed a registration examination and is licensed as a professional in the state of Pennsylvania.
