The American Heart Association, with support from Kroger Health, developed a free course entitled, “Leveraging Grocery Stores to Deliver Personalized Nutrition: An Interdisciplinary Model of Care in the Community.” The goals of this course are to a) raise awareness about an interdisciplinary model of care to deliver accessible, personalized nutrition and related services in a grocery store setting and b) discuss how collaboration of a RDN with patient physicians and other community-based health professionals benefits both patients and health care providers.
