Finger Lakes Health Prevention and Wellness Programs move to New Geneva Location
Several of Finger Lakes Health’s prevention and wellness programs are coming together in one location to serve the needs of the Finger Lakes area.

The health system’s Diabetes Management, Diabetes Education, L.U.N.Ch. program (Living Under Nutritional Challenges), and Nutritional Counseling are now all located at 293 West North Street in Geneva. The site formerly housed Interlakes Orthopaedic Surgery, now located in the Finger Lakes Health Commons at 789 Pre-Emption Road, Geneva.

Diabetes Education’s Kristen Arnold, a Certified Diabetes Educator, offers individual diabetes education and diabetes nutrition counseling for adults, children, individuals with gestational diabetes, individuals needing insulin pump therapy training and/or continuous glucose monitoring (personal and professional). Diabetes Education sessions are also provided directly in various primary care offices. A comprehensive diabetes education course, "Living With Diabetes," as well as monthly diabetes support groups are also offered. For more information, call (315) 787-4006

Diabetes Management offers an advanced specialty in the assessment and the intensive management of diabetic patients. Headed by Family Nurse Practitioner Rhonda Solomon, Diabetes Management is based on the American Diabetes Association and the American Academy of Endocrinology guidelines.

Solomon provides support to the primary care physicians in managing this difficult disease and accepts referrals for dysmetabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes), new diabetics and diabetics with advanced disease. These services are beneficial for improving glycemic control prior to surgery and gaining control in patients who have been discharged from the hospital. Using a multidisciplinary approach, she will provide you with advanced diabetes care using education, medications, monitoring and diagnostic sensor technology, insulin pump therapy, and maintenance of diabetes prevention standards. For more information, call (315) 787-5493.

The Living Under Nutritional Challenges (L.U.N.Ch.) program is a medically monitored weight management program. The L.U.N.Ch. team, led by Dr. Scot Kolsin and Family Nurse Practitioner Rhonda Solomon, works with individuals to create a plan to best suit his/her dietary and healthcare needs. Dr. Kolsin is dual board-certified in Family Practice and Bariatric (Obesity) Medicine – one of the only physicians in Ontario, Seneca, and Yates counties to have the latter certification. The L.U.N.Ch. program is broken down into three phases: phase 1 - weight loss, phase 2 - transition, and phase 3 - support. Each phase addresses nutrition, exercise/activity, behavior modification and metabolic/medical management. The obesity medicine community is collectively working to ensure that individuals struggling with obesity understand that obesity is a disease and not simply a lifestyle choice. Diabetes prevention and cardiovascular risk reduction are also an important component of the L.U.N.Ch. program. Registered Dietician Christina Ganzon and Physical Therapist Tom DelPapa are also part of the L.U.N.Ch. team. A comprehensive individual plan is developed for each participant while they are guided by the L.U.N.Ch. staff and support groups. For more information, call (315) 787-5492.

Finger Lakes Health's Nutritional Counseling programs are dedicated to the promotion of wellness in our community through nutrition education. The programs are delivered by Registered Dietitian Christina Ganzon who assists individuals in learning to eat well. Nutrition consultations include individualized assessments of nutrition needs to treat specific pre-existing conditions. Sessions provide detailed information on nutrition strategies and practical guidelines to help individuals maintain a healthy lifestyle. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (315) 787-4372.
