Nutrition Consultations Available via Zoom

Nutrition is a vital component of wellness. To help you reach your wellness goals, we now have a Registered Dietitian on our full-time staff. Deidra Nelson is available for nutrition consultations at the Recreation Center.

The dietitian provides counseling on a wide range of nutrition concerns including:

  • General nutrition

Learn how to make reasonable changes in eating habits and behaviors, set manageable goals for long-term results, and get evidence-based information applicable to your goals from our registered and licensed dietitian.
