Dietary and Nutrition

The goal of Dietary and Nutrition Services is to provide clients with the best possible comprehensive nutrition services as a part of their total care. Meals and extra nourishments are prepared and served by a highly trained and qualified staff to all patients admitted into the Inpatient Department at CHC, as well as their guests and to paying customers.  Meals are attractively served, palatable, nutritionally adequate, therapeutically correct and culturally acceptable.  Registered Dietitians provide nutrition assessments and/or counseling.  Nutrition education is provided through verbal, visual, and hands-on demonstration to promote behavior modification.  The Dietitians provide individual, as well as group education, and counseling services in a variety of settings.  These settings include, but are not limited to, Choctaw Health Center, field clinics, the home, schools, and communities.  The Director of Dietary and Nutrition and two of the Clinical Dietitians are housed near the WWC.  The other Clinical Dietitian is housed in the Diabetes Management Center.  They provide individualized, clinical nutrition services to the clients visiting these centers, as well as nutrition education programs and in-services for various programs. These programs include topics such as breast-feeding, prenatal nutrition, diabetes meal planning, reading food labels, weight management, cooking demonstrations, etc.  They also provide in-services and education classes on similar topics to various groups in the community, such as the schools, Early Childhood programs and elderly nutrition program.
