Dietitian’s help assist people in understanding the link between how food and diet affects your body and how food and drinks help nourish both healthy individuals and those living with chronic disease. Dietitian's educate on how to achieve and sustain a healthy lifestyle through dietary choices. A healthy diet can prevent and improve disease and illness and improve overall health.

Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are the gold standard in dietetic and nutrition as they are able to translate scientific nutrition and health information into client centred practical advice. Accredited Practising Dietitians understand that there is no one sized-fits-all approach when it comes to diet and nutrition. At PDC Health Hub during a dietitian consult, the whole person is considered and this include medical history, activity levels, social history (e.g. occupation, lifestyle factors) and individual goals.
