Nutrition Health Education in Richmond, Kentucky HealthTalks Transcript
Mollie Such, RD:
Here at Baptist Health Richmond, we offer nutrition classes to a wider range of individuals. We see a lot of infants who are having trouble gaining weight, adolescents who are having trouble losing weight. We see adults for heart disease or kidney disease, cancer patients who are losing weight at a rapid rate. We see patients who are struggling with eating disorders. All those disease states need nutrition, right?
Nutrition is vital to our health. It’s very important that they seek advice from a trained clinician, like a dietitian, and we get to offer those services here at Baptist health.
At your initial appointment, we review your packet that you filled out, which includes a 24-hour recall. We really want to find out where you are in your journey of this lifestyle change. Are you ready to make a change? Do you need some assistance? That’s where we come in to provide you with evidence-based education that will help you reach those goals.
At the end of the session, we like to set at least three goals that are going to help you accomplish your long-term health goals. Our goal is for you to succeed in whatever health outcome you have set. It’s really important, and it works. When you come for nutrition counseling, and you have the motivation and the desire to change, you can change.
Our joy is your success here at Baptist Health Richmond.
