many healthy foods like lean meats, fruits, vegetables and healthy grainsThere is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and health. We all have different bodies, goals, backgrounds and tastes. Each one of us has our own individual food preferences, cultural traditions, and most importantly, “relationship” with food. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes March as National Nutrition Month®, and this year’s theme, “Personalize Your Plate,” recognizes that good nutrition is best achieved in very personal and unique ways.

Not sure how to take the first step to better nutrition and health in a way that works for you? While I included a few general “Nutrition Ground Rules” at the end of this blog, our registered dietitians (nutritionists) at Atrius Health can help identify healthy eating habits and tailor a plan that is right for you.

Our nutritionists provide medical nutrition therapy to our patients for various diagnoses, but each nutritionist has specialty areas of interest. The following is a list of Atrius Health nutritionists with their specialties and practice locations. If you would like to meet with a nutritionist, patient referrals can be requested through your primary care provider or another Atrius Health clinician.
