Wounded Warrior Therapy
The wounded warrior population requires a unique combination of medical nutrition therapies that BAMC dietitians offer. Patient referrals for nutritional counseling include:
- Weight loss or gain
- Wound healing and rehab nutrition
- Nutrition support
- Drug-nutrient interaction
- Medication side-effects management
- Sports nutrition
- Family care feeding instructions
Active Duty personnel assigned to the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) and their dependents should have a consult from their primary care manager (PCM) that refers them to a Registered Dietitian. The Nutrition Clinic will contact the personnel after receiving the referral and schedule an initial appointment within seven days.
WTB personnel and their dependents check in for their nutrition appointments either at the Jennifer M. Moreno Primary Care Clinic on Ft. Sam Houston across from Liberty Barracks or at the Center for the Intrepid (CFI). Please call 808-2232 or 808-3609 to verify your appointment location.
Consults for WTB personnel who are patients at the CFI are processed by their case manager. CFI case managers schedule nutrition appointments with the CFI dietitian after they review the consult. CFI patients check in for their nutrition appointments with the main receptionist on the ground floor at the CFI, or with the 3rd floor receptionist. The dietitian will escort the patient to the appointment office.
For any questions, please call the Nutrition Clinic at (210) 808-2232 or 808-3609.
