The MFAP nutrition program has been established as a provider of support services to those infected with HIV. The goal of this program is to bring greater awareness to the HIV community about the significance of nutrition and its impact on the disease and those infected with it. Our nutritionist meets with individuals one-on-one to assess their current nutritional status and advises them on the best course of action to develop and improve their nutrition and well-being.
The nutritionist can work with you to create realistic and obtainable nutritional goals to aid in the process of managing your life and HIV.
Nutrition education can be provided on various conditions, including:
· High Blood Pressure
· High Cholesterol
· Weight Management
The nutritionist will discuss intake and conduct a nutritional assessment.
During the visit the client’s nutritional status will be evaluated,
realistic goals will be set, and accomplishments will be tracked and monitored.
Through the nutrition program clients are able to access a variety services, including:
· Nutritional Supplements
· Vitamins and Minerals
· Non-perishable food pantry
