Our Approach to Nutrition

The team of dietitians at Student Health Services practice a Health at Every Size ® approach to nutrition care. This concept means that we appreciate diversity in body shapes/sizes and recognize that health is not measured by the number on the scale. Clients are encouraged to nourish the body with foods that support physical and mental health and reduce emphasis on specific weight or aesthetic goals.

How to Make an Appointment

Appointments are available Monday-Friday and can be scheduled via HealthyPackPortal or by calling Student Health at 919.515.2563.  A $25 no show will be charged for all appointments not cancelled or rescheduled in advance.

Cost of Appointments

Each student is allowed two free nutrition counseling visits per academic year. For each additional visit, there will be a $60 charge that can be billed to your insurance or paid out of pocket.
