The Wellness Center contains a wealth of resources on nutrition tailored to every need of our student body.

Since AU does not have a Registered Dietitian on staff, students requiring nutrition counseling based on individual health needs can obtain a referral to a Registered Dietitian off-campus if necessary.

Referrals to Registered Dieticians

To find a trustworthy Registered Dietitian we recommend visiting the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) RD Finder at http://www.eatright.org/programs/rdfinder/

By entering your zip code you can find Registered Dietitians in your local area.

Please verify your insurance coverage by calling the number on the back of your insurance card as some insurance plans provided limited or no coverage for nutrition services. Also be sure to check if the Dietitian accepts insurance or how much their fees are prior to your first appointment.
