About Chad

Chad Hetherwick, MS, RDN, CNSC
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

 

"I understand how difficult it can be to take control over your own health, including what you eat.  I provide a caring presence and support you without judgment."

Chad has lived and worked as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in Prescott, AZ since 2004.  He's helped many people learn to manage their health through their diet.

Chad enjoys exploring the outdoors, creating art, and having fun with his family.

"Throughout my 15 year career as a hospital dietitian, I have had the opportunity to help countless people with a wide range of backgrounds and illnesses throughout the lifespan, including: premature infants, children and adults, critical illness, medical and surgical recovery, palliative care, and end of life. 

I've learned all I can in each situation, and I'll do the same for you."
