After your visit, complete this short survey to provide us some feedback about your visit.


Healthy Eating Group Appointment

Unless you've been referred by a doctor or have a known medical condition, we'll start your nutrition education and consultation with a 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 via MyHealthSpace under Groups/Workshops. The Healthy Eating Group Appointment dates available in the Spring Semester are in the Center for Health and Well-Being room 114 and as follows:

Wednesday 4/15/2020 3-4:30 p.m.
Monday 4/27/2020 3-4:00 p.m.


Wellness Coaching

As a follow-up to Healthy Eating Group, individual wellness coaching is available to guide participants in establishing lasting health behaviors based on their individual needs. Please call 803-777-8283 for more info click here. 

Doctor Referrals

Food insecurity is a lack of reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable nutritious food, and it's happening right here at UofSC. This training is a collaboration between Student Health Services and the Leadership and Service Center. It will highlight awareness of food insecurity among college students, ways to identify, respond and refer to on and off campus resources available for food insecurity relief.
