To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Lompoc Valley Medical Center and Lompoc Health are putting in place new rules concerning laboratory appointments. The temporary changes are being made to help limit interactions between patients and staff, to adhere to CDC-recommended social distancing, and to reduce the likelihood of community spread of COVID-19. They will be in place until further notice.

In our society, the word "diet" is often used as a four-letter-word. We usually associate diet with deprivation, giving it a negative connotation. The more accurate definition of diet is simply the types of foods and beverages consumed daily, along with the attitudes and behaviors with which they are associated.
