We offer medical nutrition therapy to help you tailor your diet to your personal health needs. Common concerns that students may have that may benefit from nutrition services include weight management, diabetes, digestive disorders, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, disordered eating, food allergies/intolerances, vegetarian or vegan diet management, and student athletes or other students with specific dietary needs.
