Yet, they are all preventable diseases with nutrition being a key modifiable risk factor. Dietary choices not only influence current health, but also whether a person will develop a chronic condition late in life. This six part series will focus on the role nutrition plays in managing and preventing chronic disease, as well as focusing on motivating clients for behavior change.
