Nutrition focused physical exam, who, what, when, who and how flyer

Kristen Hilvers, MS, RDN, LD, CNSC, Coordinator, ISU Dietetic Internship-Meridian and Clinical Assistant Professor is one of the few dietitians in Idaho qualified to train other dietitians in the Nutrition Focused Physical Exam (NFPE).  

This month, she shares her expertise at a regional gathering of dietitians from the Treasure Valley.

The NFPE is a systematic head-to-toe exam of a patient's physical appearance and function, which helps dietitians to evaluate nutritional status and diagnosis malnutrition and nutrient deficiencies/toxicities.
