Children's Medical Center is proud to announce that we have a Nutritionist, Elizabeth Britt, MS, RD, LD, CLC, on staff.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Britt primarily works out of our Palm Harbor & Westchase locations at this time. We look forward to her expanding to our other locations in the future.

Nutritional Services focus on meeting the nutritional needs of the patient as well as achieving appropriate growth and development. Our Nutritionist will provide nutrition education and counseling for multiple medical conditions and will work directly with patients and their families to develop a nutrition plan that will meet the medical and cultural needs of the family.

Elizabeth "Betsy" will evaluate patients for risk and will provide full assessments, nutrition counseling, education on specific diets, menu analysis and calorie counts, and also evaluate adequacy of development and growth. In addition, she will provide follow-ups with our patients and their families to make sure that the nutrition plan is achieving the goals they have established.
