Happy National Nutrition Month® 2016!

I love celebrating. I think we all do. There's birthdays, holidays, and national days . . . peanut butter day, hamburger day, pie day. The list goes on and on.

We do this in the medical field too. We have nurse's week. In March, we celebrate Social Work month, Kidney Month, and National Nutrition Month®. Can you guess which is my favorite?? Don't answer that; don't make me choose.

As a medical profession, I so value my team. I've had the privilege of working on several interdisciplinary teams, which are comprised of doctors, nurses, social workers, child life workers, and dietitians. It is such a cool thing to learn from one another and work alongside one another to take the best possible care of our patients. I love it!

In honor of all of this celebrating in March, here is my roundup of all of the celebrations, so you can be in the know.

Have you ever wondered about if you are keeping your kidneys healthy? Are you concerned about blood pressure or dietary salt intake. Learn about how to keep your kidneys healthy and add tons of flavor to food without adding buckets of salt. It's National Kidney Month, so take care of yourself.

Happy National Social Worker Month! I enjoy the opportunity to work with and learn from different professions. Every health care and medical professional works together to best serve their patients. Learn how my social workers have been an integral part of caring for my patients.

I enjoy being a dietitian and teaching people about good nutrition and health. So, how did this month celebrating nutrition start? How did National Nutrition Month® start? Find out here.
