Dietetics is the study of the relationship between food, nutrition and your health. Our dietitians work in this field to provide food and nutrition information to improve your health. We translate the latest scientific information into practical advice about what to eat. After all… you are what you eat.
Problems with blood sugar levels, weight, cholesterol, or high blood pressure? A big part of the puzzle is your diet and our University qualified dieticians will help you achieve your health goals.
Dietitians develop diet plans to meet patient’s nutritional needs. This includes people recovering from illness or surgery, and those with health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, swallowing difficulties and poor appetite. Dietitians educate patients and family members on eating well, and work with them to make sure that diets meet individual needs.

Jaclyn Cooper I completed five years of study (3 year bachelor degree and 2 year masters degree)to become a dietitian and loved every minute of it. I have worked with Rise for four years now and love working alongside the rest of the allied health team to assure we get the best outcome for our patients.
As a bit of a foodie myself, I am not into deprivation of any sort and do not put my patients on restrictive, unmanageable diets. Instead I work with them to come up with an eating plan that encompasses a variety of fresh and nutritious foods and combine this with a good exercise plan (provided by our wonderful exercise physiologist) to get them feeling their very best.
There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding diet these days and my job is to separate fact from fiction and put you on the path to great health.
