Nutrition and Wellness Services To Keep You Healthy
At Community Health Center, we know keeping you healthy is as important as taking care of you when you’re sick or not feeling well. That is especially important for patients with complex or chronic medical conditions.
Many of the chronic health conditions our patients face can be greatly improved by dietary changes. With education, guidance, and support by our staff nutritionist, we have seen many successful patient outcomes. Using a model of integrated care, our nutritionist communicates with a patient’s primary care provider to devise an appropriate treatment plan, and progress is tracked by the healthcare team. With this information, our patients receive the support from their team necessary to reach their health goals.
Nutrition services are provided to all in need. In addition to education and diet planning for patients with chronic diseases, nutrition services are available for all patients in need of nutritional guidance or who are identified as at-risk due to elevated body mass index (BMI) measurements and other health concerns.
For information about nutrition services, please contact Nutritionist Dena Irwin: 508-477-7090 ext. 1184.
