Did you know that Georgetown Pediatrics has our very own dietician? Amy Crist has been with us for about 9 months and is available by appointment through our office.
Working part-time for us, Amy is a registered dietician (RD) with a master’s degree, has also worked at Georgetown Community hospital, and makes her home right here in Georgetown.
Amy loves working with infants, children, adolescents and their parents in developing healthy eating habits, including those who have dietary restrictions. She is a frequent speaker at local elementary schools to teach children about healthy eating and nutrition. She’s even led a support group on breast feeding. She is happy to have an appointment with you and your child or teen to discuss:
- breast feeding,
- dietary restrictions and planning as a result of disease or condition (diabetes, drug therapies, etc.),
- concerns about weight or eating disorders,
- helping the whole family develop healthy eating habits,
- diet and sports,
- picky eaters,
- and anything else you want to talk over with a dietician.
Call our office and set up an appointment soon!
