Empowering Klickitat County Residents with individualized, evidence-based nutrition, to optimize the health of our community.

Your lifestyle, physical condition and food preferences will be considered in order to create a healthy, realistic eating plan. Typically, the nutritionist, a registered dietitian, will spend one hour with you during the initial visit. The need for follow-up appointments will be determined on an individual basis.
