Lisa A. Ashwill, RD, CD: Registered Dietitian
Lisa thrives on helping others develop a healthy lifestyle. She enjoys counseling individuals on good nutrition and healthy eating habits to improve their quality of life. "I find it extremely rewarding to teach people how improving diet can improve overall well-being!"
Lisa has particular interests in diabetes education, weight management and pediatric wellness. She also supports the bariatric program at Fort HealthCare.
"I love spending time with my family. I have a three year old son who has taught me how difficult it can be to encourage healthy eating habits in children. I also enjoy running and experimenting with new foods and recipes."
Nutrition and food choices are vital components of the LAP-BAND® bariatric program and our registered dieticians work with the patients to teach and guide them towards proper nutrition. LAP-BAND® patients eat smaller amounts of food so it is the goal of nutrition services to educate patients to eat proper, nutritious foods to fill the pouch and maintain satiety (satisfaction). Extensive time is spent teaching you about your new LAP-BAND® diet.
