CarePoint Partners Receives Louisiana Dietetic Association Corporate Award

BATON ROUGE, La., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Orleans Dietetic Association (NODA) has selected CarePoint Partners as the recipient of the Louisiana Dietetic Association (LDA) Corporate Award for its efforts in demonstrating the importance of the dietetic profession. The LDA has also recognized Margaret Jones, RD, LDN for her contributions to the dietetic profession as a Nutrition Specialist for CarePoint Partners. CarePoint Partners is one of the largest, fastest-growing independent home infusion and specialty pharmacy companies in the United States, with six locations in Louisiana that are an integral part of its service area in the eastern and southern regions of the country.

According to the LDA, the criteria for the award include marketing both the image of the dietitian and the diverse expertise of the dietetic profession in order to secure the future success of the dietetic profession and the economic vitality of the LDA.  The Corporate Award demonstrates the degree to which the LDA recognizes the importance of marketing to the future of the dietetic profession. "We are proud to be rewarded for our efforts," says Nutrition Specialist Margaret Jones of CarePoint Partners, "and I am humbled by the recognition as well."

Contributing to the Corporate Award is the fact that CarePoint Partners complies with the LDA Vision to optimize patient health through food and nutrition with a goal to improve medical outcomes through improved nutritional status. This is accomplished by having a corporate registered dietitian and a local registered dietitian manage all aspects of the provision of home nutrition therapies, as well as offering nutrition risk screening and education to all home infusion patients. CarePoint Partners believes that well-nourished patients respond better to medical treatment and enjoy an improved quality of life. The nutritional services provided by the dietitians comply with the Nutrition Now, Nutrition For Life program developed by CarePoint Partners' corporate dietitian. This program is based on the premise that adequate and appropriate nutrition is a life-long necessity and that nutrition is the nucleus of optimal wellness.
