Personalized Nutritional Counseling Sessions

Update: The fall 2017 session has filled. Counseling will next be offered in spring 2018.
Work one-on-one with NYU Steinhardt graduate students pursuing a career in the field of nutrition and food studies over three personalized counseling sessions to discuss your nutrition-related issues. Participants will work with a faculty-supervised student to identify realistic goals and develop strategies to achieve them. To participate, you must have a specific nutritional concern on which to focus; the focus may be broad or specific, such as losing weight, reducing sodium intake, or adding balance to your vegetarian diet.
