Improving Health Through Better Nutrition

What you eat plays an important role in your overall health and well being. If you're looking to manage your weight or improve your diet for other health-related reasons, such as managing a chronic disease like diabetes, we are here to help.

Day Kimball Healthcare offers outpatient nutrition education and counseling for all ages to support you as you make positive behavioral changes to improve your health and meet your dietary needs. 

About the Program

Nutrition Education is offered by our nutritionist who is a credentialed registered dietitian (RD) and receives ongoing education in the latest research-based treatments. The RD is there to guide you through your nutrition and wellness journey by working together to identify areas of concern, create behavior change goals, and monitor your progress.

We provide one-on-one counseling and work closely with you to develop a customized plan to help you meet your unique health goals.
