Where can you find a Registered Dietitian in Windsor and Essex County?

Dietitians work in a number of different settings and organizations to address the needs of our community. Some dietitians work closely with individuals through one-on-one counselling, to help you adjust your dietary habits to match your personal health needs. Other dietitians target larger groups or populations by developing community programs, services, and policies that help improve the health of the community as a whole.
