The Chautauqua Center has added Steven Warden, a registered dietician nutritionist who will work from the Dunkirk and Jamestown locations.
Born and raised in the Jamestown area, Warden is a 2016 graduate of Baldwin Wallace University. He completed professional internships with the Cleveland Clinic Sports Medicine Division as a physical therapy intern, and with T3 Performance as a strength coach intern. Upon graduating, Warden worked as a performance coach for STA Sports Performance LLC in Buffalo. In 2020, after completing the Coordinated Dietitian Education Program at Buffalo State College, he graduated with a second degree in Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition.
“I love helping clients from all walks of life meet and exceed their health goals,” Warden said. “Improving the human body’s abilities through nutrition and exercise is my passion.”
Also new to The Chautauqua Center is Dr. Zachary Kiendl, who has begun seeing patients in both Dunkirk and Jamestown. The addition of Dr. Kiendl, along with Dr. Newburg, has allowed The Chautauqua Center to enhance and expand chiropractic services at both ends of the county.
Treatment from a chiropractor can relieve pain, discomfort in joints and connective tissue, headache, problems with circulation and more.
“Chiropractic care is good for people of all ages, from pediatric to geriatric, especially for patients who have chronic conditions,” said Kiendl.
A 2009 graduate of Jamestown High School, Kiendl received a degree in exercise science from the State University at Fredonia and a doctor of chiropractic degree from D’Youville College. He served as the president of the Student American Chiropractic Association and trained at Erie County Medical Center, University at Buffalo Neurosurgery and D’Youville College Campus Clinic before joining The Chautauqua Center.
The Chautauqua Center is also sponsoring the Jamestown Public Market’s 2021 season. The effort is part of a broader partnership to support the Jamestown Mobile Market program that provides low-cost locally grown produce to targeted neighborhoods throughout Jamestown. Last year, the two organizations piloted a veggie prescription program that allowed The Chautauqua Center to prescribe fresh fruits and vegetables for patients. Medical, dental and behavioral health clinicians identified patients who would benefit from free produce and helped facilitate their use of the Mobile Market.
“One of the major contributors for poor health is diet, which disproportionately affects low-income communities,” said Sarah Gilbert, The Chautauqua Center marketing specialist and Jamestown Public Market advisory board member. “We are thrilled to partner with the Jamestown Public Market again this year to help our patients eat healthier by reducing barriers like cost and transportation.”
The Jamestown Public Market’s Mobile Market program runs weekly from June through October and includes a stop outside of TCC’s Jamestown location on Institute Street. For more information, visit www.jtownpublicmarket.org.
