The link between good nutrition and good health is well documented. That's why our Nutrition Counseling team – registered dietitians (RDs) and registered dietetic technicians (DTRs) – are essential to YRMC's healthcare team.
In our hospital, YRMC's clinical dietitians partner with patients and their physicians to create nutrition plans that promote healing and fuel health. In the community, they provide nutrition counseling to people individually as well as in groups. At YRMC's Pendleton Center, diabetes educators – clinical RDs – are central to the care and advice people receive about managing diabetes.
All of our regularly scheduled inpatient RDs are Certified Nutrition Support Clinicians® and our dietetic technicians are DTRs.
