Personalized Nutritional Counseling Sessions

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. You will be contacted by March 1 by email or phone by the course faculty, who will conduct a brief interview and advise next steps. You will arrange dates and times of the counseling sessions with your assigned student counselor. Register for LVS 100 on NYUiLearn beginning January 20 and ending by February 8 (earlier if capacity is reached – participation is limited).
