We’re pleased to announce that residents with chronic illness in Mississippi County, Dunklin County and Pemiscot County now have access to free dietitian services.

Losing weight, changing bad habits and learning to cut out entire food groups can be a daunting task for anyone. For those living with chronic disease like heart disease, stroke or diabetes, handling a new diet along with managing your symptoms can be more than overwhelming. The reality is, a diet overhaul is essential for many living with chronic disease if they hope to get well. We are here to help.

Even if you know the steps to eating better, it is not always easy to find the right recipes or learn how to meal plan for a greater chance of success.

If you are a member of one of these communities, schedule a consultation with a local dietitian and start getting well.

While participants do not need a physician’s referral to participate in this program, our dietitians will have an easier time pinning down exactly how to help their clients if they can have lab work. A physician’s referral provides them with this information.

Get support in more ways than one.

 M Power is an organization that believes those in Southeast Missouri who suffer from chronic illness have been underserved too long. Learn how to manage your symptoms by enrolling in a free workshop. This free supportive program will help you develop the skills you need for talking habits and improving your health overall.

Are you a caregiver?

 Our programs can help you better serve your loved one, in addition to giving you the encouragement you deserve. You are not alone.

If your area does not currently offer dietitian services, the plate method can still help you overcome many dieting challenges.
