Nutrition Health Education Program


Nutrition Health Education Program

The Nutrition Health Education Program is for you if you are living with HIV/AIDS and have other needs that affect your health including diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.

Together with a Registered Dietitian, our program staff can help you take control of your own health through good nutrition. We'll also help you learn how to eat healthy without breaking your budget.

What Will I Learn?

We meet in a group setting with a trained Nutrition Health Educator, and share ideas with your peers. 

The year-long program meets twice a month for one hour at a time.

Our program will cover a variety of topics including

·        Reading food labels

·        Choosing between food groups

·        Keeping food safe to eat

·        Shopping smarter

·        Planning and preparing healthy meals

Learn problem-solving strategies, hear success stories, and get tips on how to keep yourself motivated.

The Nutrition Health Education Program assists patients in the nine-county region (Monroe, Wayne, Livingston, Ontario, Seneca, Yates, Steuben, Schuyler, and Chemung counties).
