About Me


I'm Cheryl Orlansky, and I have been a registered and licensed dietitian and diabetes and care and education specialist for over 30 years. I've worked as a contractor for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA in health promotion services for employees. For the past 17 years, I led a diabetes and nutrition program in a large multi site physician practice, a Northside Hospital network provider.  


My expertise is weight management, diabetes education and management, and chronic disease prevention and management (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, cancer or preDiabetes). If you are ready for lifestyle changes, I can empower you to follow a sustainable nutrition and health plan.
