The University Health Center will be closed on May 19 for Employee Appreciation Day.

General Medicine (2nd floor entrance) will be closed for the summer starting May 16. 
All summer appointments will be seen from the Urgent Care entrance.

The University Health Center offers nutrition counseling with a registered dietitian, Michele Cavoto, RD. She will work with you to create a nutrition plan that helps you achieve your personal health goals in a supportive and encouraging environment. 

Our registered dietitian can help with:

  • Nutrition Therapy for the following diagnoses: diabetes, hypoglycemia, food allergies, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, hypertension, hyperlipidemia
  • Eating disorders
  • Weight management
  • Vegetarian or vegan diet advice
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiency related to diet

Nutrition consultations are available on Mondays and Tuesdays during the fall and spring semesters. To make your first nutrition appointment, call the Health Center at 540-568-6178.

When you make the initial appointment, you will be sent an email with instructions to complete:

  • the Nutrition First Visit Form on MyJMUChart prior to your scheduled appointment
  • a daily food record (3 days would be ideal) and bring it with you to your visit

These will provide the dietitian with valuable information so that she may better assess and assist you when you meet.

During the initial session the Registered Dietitian will begin an assessment, discuss your nutrition needs, and make recommendations to improve your nutritional health.  She will help you identify dietary goals to work on and help you develop a plan to accomplish your goals.

After your initial appointment, you can schedule 30 minute follow-up appointments with the dietitian. Follow-up visits may be scheduled at the end of your appointment or by calling 540-568-6178 (select option 2).
