The use of appropriate nutritional care is an important aspect of healing. This is the goal of the Nutritional Services Department. A registered dietitian, as directed by the physician, provides for each patient's individualized nutritional needs through screening and assessment.
A diabetes education and nutrition class is offered on the third Wednesday of each month at Beauregard Health System, located in the Same Day Surgery Conference Room. This free service offers a multitude of information for people with newly diagnosed diabetes; longtime patients; caregivers; and those who want to learn more about nutrition. A nutritionally balanced and diabetes-friendly meal is served at each class.
