Nutrition Counseling In Slidell!

Nutrition is one of the primary keys to good health. Our registered dietitians are here for you whether you have a special nutrition need or just want to learn how to improve your meal planning and lose weight.

All of Slidell Memorial’s nutritional programs are staffed by Registered Dietitians (RD's). A registered dietitian is a food and nutrition expert who has the educational background and training to help you manage your nutritional health. At the hospital, registered dietitians may meet with inpatients and outpatients for their special dietary needs. Slidell Memorial is one of the leading weight loss facilities in eastern Louisiana.
