The University Health Center offers nutrition counseling from our registered dietitian (RD), Michelle Cavoto. She will work with you to create a tailored nutrition plan that fits your lifestyle and help you achieve your personal health goals in a supportive and encouraging environment.  Our registered dietitian can help with:

  • Medical diagnosis with significant nutrition implications including diabetes, food allergies, lactose intolerance, celiac disease, irritable bowel, colitis, hypoglycemia, heart disease, high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol
  • Food and body image concerns
  • Eating disorder
  • Weight management (interest in losing or gaining weight)
  • Vegetarian or vegan diet advice
  • Family history of nutrition-related disease
  • Recent appetite changes
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiency related to diet
  • Nutritional analysis if you want to get feedback on your diet and eat smarter

Nutrition consultations are available on Mondays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters.

To make your first nutrition appointment, call the Health Center at 540-568-6178. When you make the appointment, you will be sent an email with instructions to complete the Nutrition First Visit Form on MyJMUChart prior to your scheduled appointment. In addition, we ask that you keep a daily food record and bring with you to your visit. These will assist the dietitian in providing you with the best advice.

During this initial session we will begin an assessment, discuss nutrition recommendations, and help develop a plan to achieve your nutrition goals. After your initial appointment, you can schedule 30 minute follow-up appointments with the dietitian. Follow-up visits may be scheduled as you leave at the end of your appointment or by calling 540-568-6178 (select option 2).
