Nutrition Can Make a Difference
If you have cancer, diabetes, digestive disorders, eating disorders, malnutrition, obesity, elevated cholesterol or other health problems, healthy eating can make a difference.

Your specific needs will be evaluated by a registered dietitian (RD) or a licensed medical nutrition therapist (LMNT) who will present thorough, easy-to-understand information during your counseling sessions. This individualized counseling requires an appointment as well as a physician referral. Appointments must be made in advance by calling 308-398-5588. Follow-up visits will be scheduled as deemed necessary by the dietitian and/or patient.
