Nutrition Services

In today’s society, making healthy choices such as eating nutritious meals and getting enough exercise, can become a real challenge for some individuals. At Western Maryland Health System, a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) provides sound, practical, easy-to-follow advice for everyone’s unique health needs.

Reasons to Visit a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

To develop your recipe for success, a UPMC Western Maryland registered dietitian nutritionist will listen to you and base all recommendations on your personal health history, current lifestyle, favorite foods, and eating and exercise habits, as well as answer any questions you may have. The RDN will help you set goals and give you tools to help you achieve them.
