Unlock the Potential of Food: Nutrition Classes & Services
This year’s nutrition month theme is unlocking the potential of food. With so much information out there though, it can be hard to find trusted sources and know what works best for you. Our bodies, in health and sickness, are not the same. What could help your friend lose weight might have negative effects on your body.
A Primary Care Network (PCN) has a professional team who can help you realize the potential of food and make it work for your needs. Our dietitians use the science of nutrition to help you understand the connection between food and health and provide personalized guidance to meet your goals.
Often when we think of food, we may underestimate how connected it is to other aspects of our health including psychology and level of activity.
Dietitians work in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team of professionals who put your wellbeing first: physicians, nurses, psychologists, exercise specialists, social workers, and more. Often when we think of food, we may underestimate how connected it is to other aspects of our health including psychology and level of activity. This is why being part of a medical home is essential to getting the comprehensive nutritional care you need. Ask your doctor for a referral to a PCN dietitian to start managing your diet or find related services in your local PCN.
A PCN can also help you learn more about food and its role in maintaining your overall wellbeing and health and managing chronic disease. Are you looking to eat healthier for diabetes or lowering cholesterol? Losing weight the proper way? Cooking healthy recipes? Change the way you plan meals? Ask a dietitian any questions about nutrition?
