As health care providers we wear many different hats, we have such an awesome responsibility of caring for our patients. A few of our responsibilities include diagnosing, treating, educating, encouraging and the list goes on. One of my favorite roles in caring for patients is focusing on the prevention of disease. I think as providers one of the best feelings in the world is seeing our patients move away from the illness end of the spectrum to the wellness end of the spectrum. In this blog post I’m going to focus on encouraging and educating our patients on nutrition and physical activity.
