Nutritionist Services

Nutrition counseling is available for weight management, eating disorders, disordered eating, hypercholesterolemia, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes. Support is available for students dealing with any disease that can be helped by dietary intervention, including anemia, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergy, food intolerance, and gastric reflux. The Nutrition Services are provided by a Registered Dietitian (R.D.) licensed by the State of Illinois (L.D.).

Weight management - individual sessions

Students interested in achieving weight loss or weight gain are guided through proven techniques which have a focus on healthy eating, exercise, and improved body image.

Weight management - group sessions and exercise programs

Group weight management programs, exercise programs, and weight training program design can be arranged through the Office of Campus Recreation. For more information on weight management, check out the OCR Program.

Eating Disorders

The medical and nutritional needs for students with eating disorders are under the direction of the registered dietitian, a staff physician, and a staff psychiatrist. For more information on eating disorders check out the CSDC Program.

Appointments are strongly encouraged for the nutrition area. Patients are asked to be at their first appointment fifteen minutes ahead of time to fill out a brief history form. This allows the nutritionist to focus directly on the presenting problem. A missed appointment fee is assessed to students who miss or fail to cancel their appointment without giving adequate notice of one hour or more.

For further information or to make an appointment contact Medical Services at 815-753-1311.
