Between what we hear on TV and read in the news or the internet, healthy eating can become very confusing —but it doesn’t have to be. Registered dietitians can help you navigate through nutrition information and provide sound, safe and personalized nutrition advice.
Who are dietitians?
Registered dietitians are health professionals who have a university degree from an accredited university program and hundreds of hours of supervised training. They are regulated nutrition health professionals, meaning they are accountable to a regulatory body and have to keep their skills up-to-date. They use the best available scientific evidence to provide guidance and recommendations to clients or communities according to their unique values and circumstances.
The Albert County Health and Wellness Centre has changed its hours. Please note current hours below. For appointments in Riverside-Albert or Hillsborough, or information about other services, call 882-3100.
