Nutrition Consultations

Unless you've been referred by a doctor or have a known medical condition, we'll start your nutrition education and consultation with a Balanced Eating Group appointment.

Healthy Eating Group Appointment

An hour-long group appointment, students will meet with a registered dietitian to learn how to choose balanced meals and snacks on and off campus. By the end of the group appointment, students will increase their basic nutrition knowledge, know tips for eating on a budget and understand cues for eating. 

Register for a class on MyHealthSpace under Groups/Workshops.

Be Well Balanced Eating Health Coaching

As a follow-up to Healthy Eating Group, individual health coaching is available to guide participants in establishing lasting health behaviors based on their individual needs. 

Doctor Referrals

If you've been referred by a doctor or have a known medical condition, you should make an appointment for one-on-one nutrition services.
