Program Support

Department of Aging and Adult Services – Public Guardian

Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) provide technical expertise, evaluation, and guidance for nutrition standards, meal service, food service sanitation and safety, food service worker training, participant nutrition screening, and physical activity education to older adults enrolled in the Elderly Nutrition Program. Physical activity education includes evidence-based programming taught by health educators to help seniors maintain or improve physical, psychological, and social well-being for independent living.

Clinic Operations

Public Health Center patients are referred to clinic RDNs by Clinic Operations providers to offer one-on-one nutrition counseling/medical nutrition therapy services for nutrition-related chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Patients are encouraged to follow a healthy eating and daily activity lifestyle plan.

Detention Facilities

RDN participates in annual Title 15 inspections of the adult and juvenile County detention facilities along with a Registered Environmental Health Specialist and a Registered Nurse. As part of the inspection team, the RDN is responsible for analyzing menus and reviewing medical diets to ensure compliance with nutrition regulations.
