Your relationship with food and your body has significant implications on your academic and job performance, physical health, and even your emotional well-being and social life. Working with a dietitian can give you the edge you need to reach your full potential. Students, faculty, and staff with nutrition-related health concerns can schedule an individual consultation with a registered dietitian at UHS. Our dietitian works closely with the UHS medical and counseling staff to ensure consistency and quality of care.

  • UT Students Only: To help keep the cost of nutrition services office visits low, the Student Administrative Health Fee will cover 50% of the student’s financial responsibility, if any, for this charge. The office visit charge does not cover visit-related costs such as procedures, tests, supplies, medications, etc. The patient’s responsibility depends on whether they are insured, whether UHS accepts their insurance, and how much their insurance covers for nutrition services. Go to Charges and Insurance for more information.
