Nutrition Connections: Connecting You With a Healthful Diet

Posted on 3/12/2013 9:06:11 PM

Are you confused about the food choices on campus? Have you ever thought, “What is a healthful diet?” Well, get connected with Nutrition Connections, a free Nutrition Counseling Service, sponsored by the Department of Food and Nutrition, located in the Center for Health and Well-Being.

Some of the services provided are individual counseling with a peer nutrition counselor, analysis of your current diet, help with finding ways to eat a healthful diet while at college, and weight management counseling. Each academic year, Nutrition Connections helps around 300 students on the IUP main campus. Students who received the service have indicated a positive experience: “My counselor was great, she helped me with finding options in the dining hall,” and “I have a hard time sticking with a diet, but he made me see eating healthy is for a lifetime, not a diet.”

If you would like to make an appointment, e-mail the director, Nicole Clark, RD, LDN, CDE, at nclark@iup.edu. Services are provided during Fall and Spring semesters only.
