This is a great opportunity to work in our top-tier healthcare organization and gain experience in an innovative nutrition services model! Whether you are a newly registered dietitian or an experienced professional, we want to talk to you! Relocation allowance is available for this position.

In our medical clinics, Registered Dietitian Nutritionists work side by side with medical and mental health providers to address the nutritional needs of primary care patients. As a Patient-Centered Medical Home, YVFWC equally values the contributions of all medical team members.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are located at all primary care sites and counsel patients of all ages with nutrition-related conditions (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, weight management, digestive issues, food allergies, etc.), as well as for preventative education (Well Child Checks, prenatal counseling, healthy families) and general nutrition questions and concerns.

The Primary Care Nutrition Services model utilizes Motivational Interviewing, and nutrition interventions are tailored to meet the individual's lifestyle and support their health goals in a judgment-free, sensitive, and supportive environment.

Our Primary Care RDNs are readily accessible in our clinics for warm handoffs from providers. They are proactive in identifying patients to drop in through reports and registries. Same-day access is available at no cost to any patient who has established care at our clinics.
