University of Utah Health's Neuropsychiatric Institute offers the services of clinical dietitians. They are available to patients who might:
- Need support around disordered eating patterns,
- Have food allergies or intolerances, or
- Other medical conditions that require specific nutrition care.
Dietitians work closely with patients and families to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences.
