Get to Know L.A. Care’s Registered Dietitians

January 2019

three of L.A. Care's registered dietitians

L.A. Care has a team of experienced, qualified registered dietitians (RDs) ready to help your patients lower their risk of disease and manage any current conditions through improved eating habits and lifestyle changes.

Your patients can meet with one of our staff over the phone — all they need is a referral from you, their trusted provider.

Our RDs offer Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) to help treat health conditions such as diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, kidney disease, hypertension and hyperlipidemias.

The dietitian team also provides L.A. Care's American Diabetes Association-Recognized Diabetes Self-Management Education Program (DSME).
