The Clinical Dietitian is responsible for educating patients and caregivers about their overall disease and especially how it relates to nutritional management. Nutrition care plans are created to support a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention.


WDMH Dietitians are trained to advise you on food, diet and nutrition. In every province, practicing Dietitians are licensed, so you can be assured you are getting safe and ethical advice.
