I volunteer a couple times a month at a free health clinic in Durham. My friend Hillary is a volunteer as well, who mentioned it to me and asked if I was interested in volunteering as a RD with them. Apparently, patients had requested to meet with a RD...AMAZING, I KNOW!!!
I saw my first victim, I mean patient, the first week of March. HIPAA so I will not say anything other than, like most individuals in our country, this patient needed to lose weight. I discussed some super simple, very basic things to change and encouraged a little more movement.
We had follow-up visit last night, patient lost a good deal of weight!!!!!!! I almost did the happy dance!!!
In my previous RD life, as most of you know, I dealt with a lot of terminal illness and forgot how great it feels to really make a difference in someone's life without using pharmaceuticals. WEEEEEEEE or as my friend Jeremy says "Whoop-de-Whoop!!!"
Peace, love, nutrition. ~ Colleen
