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.
