The Alberta Health Services Adult Weight Management Nutrition Workshops are a provincial resource and part of a training program designed to support Registered Dietitians in providing consistent, evidence-based weight management nutrition messages to patients across the province. As such, the workshops are only available to be delivered by Registered Dietitians who are trained facilitators and are therefore not available for external use or facilitation by other healthcare providers.
Please email [email protected] , indicating your request for Nutrition Workshop Facilitator training. You will then be put in touch with Nutrition Services to continue the process.
For additional weight management nutrition resources that are available to Registered Dietitians and other healthcare providers both internal and external to Alberta Health Services, we invite you to visit our Nutrition Services Online Resource Catalogue.
