811 HealthLine Now Includes Dietitian Services

The Minister of Health and Community Services, John Haggie, announced in the House of Assembly on Thursday that the 811 Healthline now includes dietitian services.

The "Dial-a-Dietitian" is a new service now available through the provincial HealthLine.

Haggie said that the purpose is to encourage people to make healthier, more informed food choices and to receive helpful information or tips on nutrition.

A referral from a health care provider is not needed.

They are available Monday to Friday. Questions can also be sent using the Dial-a-Dietitian link on the www.yourhealthline.ca website.
