Retail registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) are an invaluable community health resource. RDNs provide nutrition therapy specific to disease management and treatment, right in the grocery store. Nutrition services range from individual counseling to group classes, both virtual and in-store. Retail dietitians often work together with retail pharmacists to provide direct access to healthcare services such as diabetes self-management and blood pressure monitoring and support.  

In this video, Lyndi Wieand, MHSc, RDN, LDN, senior clinical regional dietitian with Weis Markets, Inc. and Megan Callahan, MS, RD, LD, assistant vice president of dietitian services for Hy-Vee, Inc. share the many ways they connect food and nutrition for customers in their communities, with the ultimate goal of simplifying prescribed diet recommendations and personal solutions for better health and lasting results.
