Nutrition Counseling

Nutrition Counseling is a “covered benefit” under most health plans and is recognized as a critical and cost-effective treatment for the large portion of the population that is at risk for poor health and chronic disease.

Our Nutrition Coaches – Our services are delivered by our team of highly trained, Registered Dieticians, Certified Diabetes Educators, and other qualified Nutrition professionals.  All have satisfied the rigorous licensing requirements of their discipline, have been credentialed by the various health insurance providers and trained by us to deliver coaching services directly to employees in the workplace.

The Traditional Model The most commonly utilized venues to deliver nutrition-related services today include physician or provider offices, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, etc. This approach requires people to come to the provider, making access to these nutrition services inconvenient and inflexible. As a result, reaching the large population of people who would benefit from nutrition services has not been possible.

Our New Onsite Solution However, there is one delivery venue that does offer the opportunity to satisfy the vast unmet need for nutrition services. That venue is onsite in the workplace! This is our business and we do it better than anyone. Wellness Coaches has mastered the complex logistics necessary to effectively deliver coaching services in the workplace. To extend our reach beyond the workplace we offer a host of Telehealth and technology capabilities.
