Dietitians

 Dietitians are health care professionals educated in science, management, human development, and population health. They are nutrition specialists who can counsel and support you in making changes in your eating habits to promote health and prevent chronic illness such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease or cancer. They can also counsel you on healthy food choices if you are living with a chronic disease. Dietitians work in hospital, primary health care clinic and personal care home settings throughout the region.
