Ask the Dietitian is a great way to ask quick questions or get basic nutrition information. The dietitian will determine if the question can be addressed through an email response or if a formal one on one nutrition appointment with a dietitian is more appropriate. Please e-mail to Ask the Dietitian!

The dietitian at the Student Health Center offers presentations for groups on a variety of nutrition topics. Below are just a few:

  • Healthy Eating on Campus
  • Nutrition Basics for College Students
  • Shopping to Stock a Healthy Dorm Room or Apartment
  • Quick & Healthy Microwave Cooking in the Dorm
  • Disordered Eating & its Impact on Health
  • Healthy Eating for Athletic Performance
  • Eating Your Way through the Holidays

Learning objectives for each presentation are geared towards participants gaining a better understanding of nutrition topics for making independent food choices based on applied nutrition knowledge. Additional objectives for each session also include participants being able to identify credible nutrition resources on the internet and becoming a critical consumer of health messaging on social media and other sites.
