Nutrition Tips for Your Patients
Rural residents often face unique and significant barriers to following advice regarding diet and physical activity. Issues such as poverty, access to healthy foods and safe opportunities for physical activity, lack of social support and limited health literacy may make achieving lifestyle change particularly difficult. Lessons learned from working with rural and underserved populations will be shared. Specific examples of strategies to help patients follow your recommendations will be discussed.
