Nutrition

CCI patients can be referred by their primary care provider to the staff Registered Dietitian (RD) for nutrition assessments, counseling and education. The RD is also a Certified Diabetes Educator who can help patients with diabetes learn more about their diagnosis and effective ways to manage their condition. The CCI diabetes program is comprised of a series of classes, offered in English and Spanish, that include nutrition services, exercise recommendations, nutrition and meal planning, glucose monitoring and insulin training — all ways to improve and maintain better health. CCI offers the diabetes program for informative, practical and effective health management for children and their families, as well as for adult patients.

CCI patients and WIC participants can get staff assistance with state Medicaid eligibility and enrollment at CCI clinics. The Referral Specialists are bi-lingual and speak English and Spanish. Other language needs can be met as well.
