Rural Americans face numerous health disparities compared with their urban counterparts contributing to greater risk and death from heart disease, cancer, unintentional injury, chronic lower respiratory disease, and stroke. More than 46 million Americans, or 15 percent of the U.S. population, live in rural areas as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Denise notes, “These statistics provide a sobering challenge for rural residents who face struggles accessing predictable healthcare services,” she goes on to say, “It is extremely important to provide my medical nutrition therapy services to rural communities – I accept the challenge to work with people to improve their health and transform their lives – working together we seek out better nutrition and lifestyle habits that lead to more fulfilling lives!”
With a true passion for improving the health of citizens in New Hampshire’s rural communities, Denise focuses on compassionate, individualized care.
