The food we eat affects our health in many ways, from maintaining a healthy weight to impacting our risks for medical conditions.  At Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, our registered dietitian helps people make healthier diet and lifestyle choices, so each patient understands the important role nutrition and exercise plays in managing certain medical conditions.
