The professional staff of Helen Keller Hospital includes dietitians to assist patients with nutritional needs.
Proper nutrition plays a vital role in maintaining good health. Dietitians may be asked to counsel a patient concerning a diet related to health conditions such as diabetes, renal failure, heart failure, and/or obesity, as well as ensure patients are meeting their estimated needs via a diet, enteral, or parenteral feedings.
Our dietitian, Callie Howard, MS, RDN, LDN, works closely with Linda Evans, RN, MSN, Certified Diabetes Educator, in the Diabetes Self-Management Education program (DSME). DSME teaches you to maintain your diabetes through diet, exercise, and medication, A physician referral and advance registration is required. To register for DSME, call 256-386-4029.
