Public Health Nutrition

Public Health Dietitians work to promote healthy growth and development across the lifespan through eating well and through developing and maintaining a healthy relationship with food. With a focus on social determinants of health, we advocate for equity in our communities’ access to nourishing food. 

We work alongside community partners, school districts, and our Island Health Public Health nurses and other professionals to support programs that build resilience and well-being through food and nutrition. 

For information on our services, please contact your local health unit.
