Toppenish, WA
This is a great opportunity to work in our top-tier healthcare organization and gain experience in an innovative nutrition services model! Whether you are a newly-registered dietitian or an experienced professional, we want to talk to you!
In our medical clinics, Registered Dietitian Nutritionists work side by side with medical and mental health providers to address the nutritional needs of primary care patients. As a Patient Centered Medical Home, YVFWC equally values the contributions of all medical team members.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are located at all primary care sites, and counsel patients of all ages with nutrition-related conditions (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, weight management, digestive issues, food allergies, etc.), as well as for preventative education (Well Child Checks, prenatal counseling, healthy families) and for general nutrition questions and concerns.
The Primary Care Nutrition Services model utilizes Motivational Interviewing, and nutrition interventions are tailored to meet the individual's lifestyle and support their health goals in a judgment-free, sensitive, and supportive environment.
Our Primary Care RDNs are readily accessible in our clinics for warm hand-offs from providers, and are proactive in identifying patients to drop-in on through use of reports and registries. Same-day access is available to any patient who has established care at our clinics at no cost.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
