Clinical Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator 

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, what do you do?  

Clinical Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator at St. Luke’s Wood River.  Our department provides the community with inpatient RD services, outpatient nutrition counseling and education, diabetes self-management education, and community outreach programs. 

What are the benefits you have seen from your services in the Idaho community?

This past summer our department ran our “Youth Engaged in Activities for Health” summer camp in conjunction with the Hunger Coalition and the Blaine County Recreation District at the Hunger Coalition’s  “Bloom Community Farm”.  It was so fun to see the kids work in the garden, learn about growing their own food and then cook and eat the farm fresh bounty!  We all engaged in some fun physical activity afterwards in the BCRD pool!  I love our community programing the most because I feel we can reach the most people that way and build healthy partnerships with our community members that value the same things we do, healthy eating and physical activity! 

How can someone reach you to access your services?

Call St. Luke’s Wood River Clinical Nutrition Department at (208)727-8356 or email me at seppas@slhs.org.

 

Thank you Sarah for all that you do for our great State of Idaho.
