Meet the Mercy Dietitian
Terri Clark, Registered & Licensed Dietitian
Ever since I was young, I have had an interest in food. An elementary school project collecting pictures of what I liked had food pasted all over it. I cooked family meals as a teenager and frequented "Health Food" stores. This interest led me to the Food and Nutrition program at Georgia State University for a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics. I completed my studies with an internship at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.
I’ve been practicing Nutrition and Dietetics since 1993. My passion is to encourage the discovery of ways to be healthier – nutritionally, physically and mentally – in all aspects of our lives. Mercy Weight Loss was started because we felt there was a need in the community. Mercy Medical Center has given me the resources and time to start this program. I like to emphasize that it's not a diet program, but rather a healthier way of living.
