HealthwoRx™ Registered Dietitian
Eating properly is a challenge for many people. But what if someone's life is complicated by chronic disease? What if someone is taking steps to managing their weight but they need personalized help with their diet? What if a member has been diagnosed with a disease and requires changes to their diet?
At HealthwoRx™, we recognized that all of these individuals have different nutritional needs, highlighting the point that sometimes eating right is not as simple as it seems. As a result, HealthwoRx™ provides a registered dietitian on staff to help members make the best food and nutrition decisions for their individual needs.
Registered dietitians offer our members expert help in becoming aware of unhealthy behaviors and how to change them. People's health improves when Registered Dietitians assess their current nutritional status, provide medical nutrition therapy, develop individualized meal plans, assist them with goal setting, and give followup support.
