Are you confused by all the nutrition information out there? Or just have an interest in nutrition? Check out these helpful articles:
The Office of Health Promotion offers free nutrition consultations with a Registered Dietitian (RD). The RD will help you figure out how to incorporate nutrition and fitness into a hectic college lifestyle. Consultation topics may include, but are not limited to: improving dietary habits, plant-based diets, sports nutrition, dietary intolerances and food allergies, and weight maintenance.
Each semester a healthy lifestyle course is offered to students, free of charge. The course is taught by the office’s RD and focuses on how to incorporate meaningful food and exercise habits into an already busy lifestyle by providing you with the tools to achieve your wellness goals. By learning nutrition and fitness basics, along with behavior change, you will be able to create a lifelong plan to reach that goal.
