At WellStar, we believe that proper nutrition is the foundation of long-term health and wellness. Nutrition is closely tied to the prevention and treatment of many diseases and has a great impact on overall quality of life. Whether you are looking to lose weight, improve your cholesterol, have a healthy pregnancy or control diabetes, nutrition education is a key component to achieving your goals.

The WellStar Nutrition Network offers a variety of nutrition services for the community, including individual consultations, group classes, weight management programs and support groups. Our providers include registered dietitians, nurses, physicians and psychologists, providing a comprehensive approach to nutrition education and disease prevention.
