Nutrition Strategies: 6 Week Program

This is a 6 week one-on-one program that will focus on specific nutrition principles for optimal health. Each session will include nutritional assessments, counseling, and current and accredited nutritional education. This program will NOT assign a rigid meal plan or set of guidelines but will adapt each nutrition principle to the participants overall needs. In this program we will help individuals discuss and set realistic weekly goals so they can achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Cost of program: $35 for the entire 6 weeks (financial waivers are available if needed)

Participants will meet with a Health & Wellness Coach each week for one hour.
