Janet Carter, MS, RD, LD joined Sodexo in 2006 and is Program Manager of the Heart Health Program at MUSC’s Children’s Hospital. Heart Health is a weight management program for children & teens. Janet is very passionate about the program and very dedicated to the families she helps every day. She is certified in Adult and Pediatric Weight Management and conducts individual nutrition counseling sessions with the families on a bi-weekly basis.
She also holds group education sessions every week that involve nutrition education and games in a group setting. The program also includes Fitness Sessions every week night where volunteers work with the kids to keep them active & instill an interest in fitness. Physicians refer their overweight child and teen patients to Heart Health because of its comprehensive and family-based approach to weight management.
Through the generosity of the Boeing Corporation, Heart Health has recently joined forces with the Lean Team to create The Center for Children’s Wellness. Please visit the Heart Health and Boeing Center websites for more information: MUSCKids.org/Heart/Health MUSCKids.org/Wellness
