Nutrition & Weight LossMedical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) refers to the assessment of the nutritional status of patients with an illness, diet-related condition, or injury, in order to benefit the patient’s own health and reduce health-care costs. MNT includes setting goals for the patient’s treatment and developing a specialized nutrition prescription that includes patient education and self-management training. MNT, which is also called therapeutic nutrition, has become an increasingly important component of integrated health-care systems and is the foundation of the Cow Creek Health & Wellness Center’s diabetes program.

Background and formal education; specialized training in medical nutrition therapy with a focus on diabetes self management education.
