Gaithersburg, Md., March 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sodexo, world leader in food services and facilities management and the largest private sector employer of registered dietitians (RDs) in the US, announced today an expanded telenutrition solution to deliver dietetic expertise virtually to patients across the country. The Sodexo Nutrition and Wellness Center will provide clinical nutrition and dietetic support for patients across the United States. Sodexo dietitians provide programs and services virtually, with emphasis on individual counseling, metabolic testing, and medical nutrition therapy.

For 15 years, Sodexo’s Nutrition and Wellness Center has served as an online portal for in-person counselling for patients to seek dietetic services in the Denver, Co., market.
