Nutrition Consulting

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a form of nutrition counseling offered by the CHC to help people manage particular health conditions. The Center’s MNT staff includes Registered Dietitians and Nutrition Education Specialists who provide MNT for weight management, pre- and post-gastric bypass, diabetes, kidney disorders, heart health, hypertension, and other conditions and diseases that can improve gr4eatly with good nutrition. Combined work experience for MNT staff includes service in hospitals, dialysis centers, public health departments, universities, community colleges, K-12 schools, community-based nonprofit agencies, and worksite wellness programs in private businesses.

The CHC provides nutrition education for both individuals and families. Nutrition experts help people make changes in nutrition, exercise, overall lifestyle, and attitudes that support healthy living. With guidance from our staff through the entire process, participants set their own goals for making desired life changes. Our staff is willing to work with individuals and families to find an approach that works.    

Nutrition and health education services are available in Spanish and Hmong in addition to English.

The Center welcomes self-referrals as well as referrals from physicians, nurse practitioners, and nurses.

Standard fees are $90 for an initial visit and $45 for follow-up visits, but be quite low for families participating in income-based programs such as CalFresh, food commodities, free or reduced-price school lunch programs, and Women with Infant Children (WIC).
