Terese Scollard, Providence Preceptor, on Nutrition for Older Adults
Terese Scollard, MBA, RD, LD, is one of our long-standing preceptors at Providence Health & Services in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Scollard, regional clinical nutrition manager for Providence Nutrition Services, wrote an article encouraging our elders to get the nutrition they need. Eating enough nutritious foods can be a significant challenge for the older adult. Scollard points out under-nutrition or malnutrition signs to watch for, how to increase nutrition intake, and how to deal with nutrition during a medical problem.
