Nutrition Services

Registered Dietitian

The Nutrition Counseling or Registered Dietitian Consultation service includes Medical Nutrition Therapy (diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, digestive issues) using a holistic, non-diet approach to nutrition and health. The Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN) provides knowledge and practical skills according to each client’s individual needs and preferences to help them reach their health and wellness goals.

Peer Nutrition Coaching Service

The Nutrition Coaching team consists of undergraduate dietetic students supervised by the UHC Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist. This service offers clients support, encouragement and guidance in reaching general healthy eating goals, based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. The Nutrition Coach will help you break down your nutrition goal into manageable steps and offer ongoing support and accountability.

This service is available during Fall and Spring semester only.

Please note this service does not include Medical Nutrition Therapy. If you have nutrition related health issues such as diabetes, digestive disease, major food allergies, eating disorder etc., please refer to the Registered Dietitian Consultation Service.
