As chronic disease rates are rising throughout the country, so is the need for education and motivation for healthy lifestyle changes. Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an essential component of comprehensive health care.
Individuals with a variety of conditions and illnesses can improve their health and quality of life by receiving medical nutrition therapy. During an MNT visit, registered dietitians counsel clients on behavioral and lifestyle changes required to impact long-term eating habits and health.
Macon County Public Health is now offering MNT services to children, young adults ages 20 and under, pregnant and postpartum women, and to those with diabetes.
