Nutrition Counseling Now Available as Outpatient Service

Good nutrition is a key factor for the health and well-being of all of us. If we want our bodies to feel better, look better, and perform better, we need to feed them properly. As such, Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is very pleased to announce its newest service for both inpatients and outpatients – Nutrition Counseling with Registered Dietitian Katie Brown. Nutrition counseling can help people make personalized, positive lifestyle changes leading to better health outcomes. Education, support, and follow-up are all part of this process.
