As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, what do you do?  

As a RDN I will assume a new role as the Clinic Services Division Administrator for Southwest District Health (SWDH). In this position I will coordinate the delivery of public health clinical services to all six counties served by SWDH. Services will include, integrated clinical services (primary care, immunizations, reproductive health, nutrition and diabetes education, and behavioral health) and maternal and child health care (WIC, Oral Health, Nurse Family Partnership, and Breastfeeding Consultation).

Benefits from our SWDH programs and services include providing a variety of coordinated primary care services, women’s health services, educational and counseling services and a variety of wellness/health promotion programs and services.  Nutritional care services focus on weight management, diabetes prevention and care and breastfeeding.  We accept medical insurance and have a sliding fee scale, based on income, payment plans are available for insured and uninsured and we do have bilingual/Spanish educators and staff.
