We are excited to announce that our dietitian services are now supported by a Registered Dietitian Nutrition (RDN) through Chartwells. Chartwells robust level of services enables us to offer remote and onsite consultations and services to help you achieve your dietary goals.
Chartwells' registered dietitian nutritionist offers a variety of services to members of the campus community.
Nutrition consultations are available to current students, athletes, and employees. Additional outreach services and programming for campus organizations, groups, and classes can be made by request. The dietitian is a resource for those with nutrition-related questions or concerns or any special dietary needs and/or food allergies and can help you navigate the dining halls.
Sessions are considered private but are not governed by the same standards of confidentiality as a counseling appointment. Active eating disorders may require sharing of information with other collegiate departments.
The dietitian is only able to meet with current students and employees. (Unfortunately, he is unable to meet with family members, partners, and children).
